"A national system of charging people to drive on the roads is inevitable as part of a package of measures to cut congestion and pollution, Professor Stephen Glaister, head of the RAC Foundation, the UK's leading motoring lobby group, warned on Tuesday.
"Other areas [the Foundation] advocates are:
- more electrified railway lines
- a network of electric vehicle charging points
- more energy recovery from sewage sludge
- expansion of composting
- anaerobic digestion for food waste, and
- incineration, and longer term gasification or pyrolosis technology, to turn waste into transport fuel for lorries, which are harder to electrify.
