London Assembly rebuked over EfW report

Comment

These statements are correct. Energy from Waste (incineration and gasification) are the most insidious form of waste treatment committing waste - which is valuable - to a one-way ticket of destruction without recourse to any better financial rewards. We read that even the PRC (Peoples Republic of China) is intending to re-advise its Municipality Waste Treatment Strategy away from Incineration/Gasification as it is too costly to build and operate and maintain when compared against the advanced super-fast processing plants being developed by one of its invited business companies that can convert the organic materials to very profitable outcomes at a third the price of incineration and deliver a pay-back period of less than 5 years and as a result reduce importing unnecessary oil which is used for making transport fuels. We also hear that the same company proposes dealing with wasted plastics the same way and converting this to a further beneficial use which will pay for itself in two years. So the Greater London area us correct and is wise to comment and follow suit.
