Founder of Andy Hill Consultancy & Chair of the WRA

Andy Hill is Deputy Chair of the Wood Recyclers’ Association. He has worked in the UK’s organics and alternative fuels sectors for over 14 years and is the founder of Andy Hill Consultancy Ltd and former Market Development Director for SUEZ recycling and recovery UK.

Andy’s particular expertise and passion is on the commercial development of alternative fuels for the recycled wood, RDF and SRF markets, requiring development of fuel production facilities and associated supply chains including logistics, ports and shipping.

Andy is recognised as one of the leading figures in the alternative fuels sector, having pioneered the first UK SRF exports to non-European markets.

He is a regular speaker at conferences all over the world both as an independent expert and on behalf of the WRA, and regularly represents industry with key stakeholders such as the Environment Agency, DEFRA and the UK Government.

During his time at SUEZ, Andy helped establish over a million tonnes of alternative fuels supply to a number of UK and export markets including to the CHP and cement sectors, resulting in SUEZ recycling and recovery UK becoming the largest exporter of alternative fuels and a key player in both EU and non-EU markets.
