Incinerators: EC Law

Volume 487: debated on Tuesday 10 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what assessment he has made of levels of compliance of emissions from energy from waste plants with the EU Waste Incineration Directive; and if he will make a statement. (254411)

Operators of waste incineration plants are required to comply with permits under the terms of the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2007 which implement the Waste Incineration Directive (2000/76/EC). Assessment of compliance, and consideration of enforcement action in the event of non-compliance, are matters for the relevant environmental regulator.
