With Prosiect Gwyrdd/Incinerator gravy train for consultants and advisers.. trundling on... postponing the next meeting. Still waiting for the revised the financial assessment- and Final Business Case
Tara King started life as Project manager for Prosiect Gwyrdd then we have Tara King, Cardiff council’s chief officer for waste management,
Now for Prosiect Gwyrdd meetings going along as Tara King, Business Advisor, Cardiff City Council
what we were saying ...Wednesday, March 10, 2010 Questions for Prosiect Gwyrdd
- Has the financial assessment been revised to take into account the falling tonnages of residual waste (rather than increasing tonnages assumed)?
- Has a financial assessment been calculated for scenarios in which residual household waste meets the targets given in the draft new Waste Strategy for Wales (maximum 295 kg per inhabitant per year in 2012-13, decreasing to 150 kg per inhabitant per year by 2024-5)?
- what is the risk of choosing Viridor-type incineration, if incinerator bottom ash is found to be hazardous waste (cf. the EA says this is to be taken as the default) ?
- what is the risk if CO2 from incineration is counted(it isn't at the moment) as adding to the carbon-footprint of 'waste management/disposal', as needed to conform with the EU ETS scheme, whereby the waste sector has to reduce CO2 equiv emissions by 16% (2020 levels compared with 2005)?
and in para 8.11.8. 9 "Given the magnitude of the ‘Gap’ that arises under both options, it is clear that partnering authorities will face a significant financial challenge to manage their future residual waste arrangements, irrespective of the final option that is chosen."
