Bill is an entrepreneur with a wealth of experience in the minerals and waste sectors. He started his career in sand and gravel extraction through his family owned company W H White plc. This company went on to develop waste management activities based upon Whites Pit Landfill site in Poole, which became the principal waste facility serving Dorset.

He further diversified the waste management activities on the original site to include skip and construction waste recycling and power generation. A landfill gas power station was commissioned in the mid 1990s and accounts for nearly 80% of the sustainable energy produced within Dorset. In 1998, having sold the landfill business, Bill turned his attention to the treatment of municipal solid waste, which in turn led to New Earth Solutions being established in 2002 and New Earth Energy in 2008.

Bill’s contribution to the environmental industry was recognised in 2006 and 2007 when he was ranked 49th and 12th in the CNBC European Business Low Carbon Pioneers list.

Bill also featured in the 2009 Green Heroes list published by CNBC European Business.
