Councils call on banks to save Renewi’s Derby EfW


Derby city council and Derbyshire County council finally do the math and work out that the so-called 'energy-from-waste' incinerator, will bankrupt them. Reduction, reuse, recycling & composting are cheaper than incineration, yet recycling must be dismantled, (and is being in Derby) to 'feed' the burner contracts, - 'calorific' and 'organic' values. Yet Derby city council admitted that at a council meeting that recycling was cheaper than the incinerator. Mass balance also reveals more energy, (& diesel and water etc) wasted inthe process, than the tiny amount of energy created Burning plastics is high-carbon, polluting and definitely NOT 'green infrastructure' Banks which fund such wrongly called 'renewables' are supporting the destruction of world resources and bankrupting future generations, along with the planet.
