Consultation II – Urgent
Peel Energy has submitted an additional report to Trafford Council to try to convince them that the emissions from their incinerator (The Barton Renewable Energy Plant) will not infringe the law. We have analysed this document and have found many holes in their evidence.
Trafford Council are holding ANOTHER CONSULTATION on this document with a deadline of Wednesday 19th October 2011.Â We need your help again!
We need you to make any objections you have to this report (click here to view the report) known to Trafford Planning.Â Please email them (firstname.lastname@example.org) including the reference number 76153/FULL/2010 and your name and address.
Some of the reasons for objecting that we have spotted are outlined below.Â Please feel free to use these points in your objection letters.
1. Peel has stated that heavily contaminated wood will be incinerated at BREP including copper, chromium and arsenic. They are relying on external sources to sort out the wood, i.e. recycling centres and have not provided any information on if they are going to do anything to try to remove it before it gets burnt.
2. Fichtner has admitted underestimating NOx concentrations at Stroma Gardens (near the Pizza Hut) by more than 50%. They quoted a level of 32ugs when the level should have been 62.2ugs.
3. Of all the biomass references contained in the new report, no plant incinerates more than 20% waste wood. BREP plans to burn up to 65%. Not comparing like for like.
4. Of all the letters of supposed support by the worldâ€™s biggest boiler manufacturers, only 2 are included in the report. Neither of these two guarantees emission levels below 125 mg/m3. Itâ€™s all â€œwe believeâ€! One of them even quotes â€œfluidised bedâ€ which is NOT being used by BREP.
5. Peel Energy is refusing to modify the design of the building even though Trafford Council has concerns about the design.
6. No data is provided by Peel Energy that any plant in the world which operates under the same conditions as BREP, can meet these figures.
