SEPA produce guidelines for Thermal Treatment of Municipal Waste

SEPA produced guidelines for Thermal Treatment of Municipal Waste yesterday (27th of September).

The purpose of the document is to set out SEPA’s views on the role of thermal treatment in dealing with municipal waste within the context of the National Waste Strategy: Scotland.

The document covers the strategic role of thermal treatment: it does not provide technical guidance on site-specific issues.

Thermal treatment is a generic term used in this document to cover all processes that involve the use of heat to treat waste. Such processes can also be termed incineration and, in line with the Waste Incineration Directive definition, includes thermal oxidation, gasification and pyrolysis processes, and energy from waste.
