Veolia waste incineration trial conditions
In 2017, Veolia sought advice from the EPA as to how to submit requests to undertake waste incineration trials at the facility.
The EPA identified that changes to the current licence would be required and Veolia has recently notified surrounding premises that it has applied to the EPA to conduct incineration trials of waste containing PFAS.
As part of the process to change the licence, notifications and public advertising of the proposed changes will occur once Veolia’s stakeholder engagement process is complete. The EPA will consider and where appropriate incorporate any feedback received prior to any changes to the licence occurring.
Veolia has indicated that if the changes to the licence are successful, the first plans to be formally submitted to the EPA for assessment and approval will be for PFAS affected wastes (both solid and liquid).
