Minister to get green briefing.

A GOVERNMENT minister will visit the North East today to find out more about the region's greenest projects.

Lord Henley, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State in the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, who has overall responsibility for UK waste management and recycling, will visit green projects in Newcastle and Teesside.

He will then hear about the region's most exciting environmental and renewable developments at the international Bioresources Conference held at Gateshead's Hilton hotel.

Dr Stan Higgins, chief executive, and John Brady, senior project manager of North East Process Industry Cluster, the organisation that secured the visit said: "We are delighted to have this opportunity to show a leading Government minister a number of the projects and initiatives already under way in the region, together with a number of planned investments.

"Such projects are highlighting the North East as a leading player in a low carbon economy and at the same time reducing the volume of products going to landfill.

"In addition, Lord Henley''s presence at our Bioresources Conference presents us with an opportunity to showcase our assets and capability in the renewable sector to a wider and international audience."
