The provisions of the waste incineration directive have applied to relevant facilities burning waste oil since December 2005. There has been no change in those provisions. We are aware that for commercial reasons Corus has ceased taking waste oil for use as a reductant in one of its steel plant. Other outlets for that waste oil exist including export to re-refining plant in other member states which can recycle the oil back into base lubricating oil. The Environment Agency is maintaining a close dialogue with the waste oil sector to ensure that waste oil can continue to be managed in an environmentally sound manner.
