Party!

Please find here our invitation to you to attend our party… the exhibition from 13th October to 8th November, and/or the launch event on the evening of 15th October before the Incinerator’s inauguration on the morning of the 16th. If you could let us know you’re coming, that would be… Continue reading

Participate!

Hello! Thank you for your interest and concern. You may be wondering what exactly we are planning. Well, we haven’t ironed out all the details yet. But we can tell you that the overall idea is to knit lots of particles and set them free in Exeter, to bring alive… Continue reading

Planning

After months of wondering when the Incinerator would be formally opened, and by whom (Prince Charles was mentioned!), Diana finally received an invitation to The Big Event. This also meant that we could select some dates and start planning in earnest for our exhibition. Continue reading

2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin

Polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs; known colloquially and inaccurately as dioxins) are subject to the European Waste Incineration Directive, which puts strict limits on emissions to air. Incineration is controlled to minimise their production, and the flue gas is treated post-combustion. The resulting toxic fly ash must be handled as hazardous waste.… Continue reading

2,3,4,7,8-Pentachlorodibenzofuran

Polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs; known colloquially as furans) are subject to the European Waste Incineration Directive, which puts strict limits on emissions to air. Incineration is controlled to minimise their production, and the flue gas is treated post-combustion. The resulting toxic fly ash must be handled as hazardous waste. Emissions of… Continue reading

Sulphur dioxide

Sulphur dioxide is subject to the European Waste Incineration Directive, which puts strict limits on emissions to air. Sulphur dioxide, along with particulate matter, is implicated in forming winter-time smog. It can cause irritation, coughing and a feeling of chest tightness. People suffering from asthma are particularly sensitive to high… Continue reading

Particulate matter

Incinerators may emit fine particles, and the EU Waste Incineration Directive puts limits on emissions to air of heavy metals, dust, and total organic carbon, among other pollutants. Therefore, incinerators operate a filtration system to control particulate emissions. Emissions of particulate matter from an incinerator typical of those currently operating… Continue reading

Hydrogen halides

Hydrogen fluoride and hydrogen chloride, but not hydrogen bromide, are subject to the European Waste Incineration Directive, which puts strict limits on emissions to air. They are acidic gases primarily released to air from combustion of fuels which contain trace amounts of fluoride, chloride or bromide. They are highly corrosive,… Continue reading
