The Next Generation (TNG) have been allowed to resubmit their EIS for their Eastern Creek incinerator after agreeing to remove shredded vehicles and chromate treated timber from the fuel stream. They will burn mixed waste organic outputs (MWOO) instead.
But according to the EPA, MWOO contains shredded plastics, persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and toxic heavy metals that cannot be removed. This makes it unsuitable as a fuel as toxic heavy metals will be discharged and POPs such as dioxins and furans will be produced.
So, what’s the bottom line??
TNG’s revised EIS still creates the same unacceptable risks to the environment and health of surrounding residents and should be rejected now! Support our fellow neighbours in Western Sydney! Click here to find out how!
