Volume 715: debated on Thursday 26 November 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what is the environmental impact of burning (a) natural gas, and (b) recovered fuel oil in plants compliant with the European Union waste incineration directive. [HL98]

In each case, compliance with the stringent emission limit values and other requirements set out in the waste incineration directive minimises the environmental impact that might otherwise arise from burning these materials.
