Campaigners renew anti-EfW efforts


Seemingly, the information held in private by Gloucestershire CC, which shows that the UBB project requires a treatment fee of £140+ per tonne has been rumbled. It is already known that proposals already in the pipeline elsewhere are being mooted at treatment fees of £zero per tonne input and these programmes can make a really positive business case to produce renewables (fuels and energy) which for the remaining organic materials that would result will cost considerably less than that which is proposed here (CAPEX) and be competitive. Saving £140 per tonne on even 190,000 per year alone is £26+million and that cannot be ignored by any "cash-strapped" council and the Council-Tax payers should surely be given this. Incineration is - as reported - yesterday's technology and too expensive.
