Cap on Incineration

CEWEP Ireland makes a submission to the the Section 60 Capping of Incineration and Other Matters Environmental Report

CEWEP Ireland supports the overarching objectives of the Policy Decision insofar as they seek a high degree of environmental protection in waste treatment and aim to promote the waste hierarchy. However, in targeting waste-to-energy only, rather than a tier of the waste hierarchy like recovery or disposal, many of the objectives of the PD and the options developed from them are at odds with the Waste Framework Directive and the Landfill Directive. Furthermore, CEWEP Ireland has serious reservations about the methodology used in the Environmental Report.
