Expanding waste incineration and combustion workload

Wiser Environment has seen an upturn in the amount of environmental consultancy work in relation to the incineration and combustion of waste material particularly for small scale combustion and those utilising advanced thermal treatment techniques.

Senior Consultant for Wiser Environment, Ben King said: “Over the last six months we have definitely seen an increase in the level of activity around waste incineration and have advised on incineration or combustion of a range of waste materials including tyres, plastics and poultry litter. This is an evolving area of the waste industry where there is a lack of definitive guidance on the complex regulatory framework which surrounds ‘waste incineration’ and can cause complications. This is particularly the case with gasification plants looking to produce useable products where a thorough appreciation of both the process and regulations are required to avoid costly regulatory delays.”

Wiser Environment has been working closely with leading air quality consultants Cambridge Environmental Research Consultants (CERC), developer of the ADMS advanced dispersion model which sets the world standard for air emissions modelling.

In November, Ben spoke to a record attendance of over 50 at an ADMS User Group meeting about the challenges of permitting advanced thermal treatment facilities.

The EA has updated its odour management plan guidance

The EA has updated its odour management plan guidance. Overall, the guidance outlines how operators must control and monitor emissions from their activities that may cause pollution.

Changes include clarifications regarding when the EA will want an odour management plan. They may request one during pre-application, determination, variation or at any point during the lifetime of your permit.

Also, Materials recycling and handle odorous inputs or reject streams and Intensive Farming have been added to the list of Activities that require an odour management plan.
