Incinerator a threat to important BioScience jobs in Antrim – Mitchel McLaughlin

30 March, 2010

 Sinn Féin MLA for South Antrim, Mitchel McLaughlin has voiced disappointment at a report produced by AFBI on the Rose Energy proposal for an incinerator in Glenavy.

Mitchel McLaughlin said:

“I am disappointed at the report provided by the Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute for into the proposed construction of a chicken waste incinerator in Glenavy.

“I challenge AFBI to clarify whether or not this report was based AFBI’s own research or on data that was provided by the proposers of the incinerator?

"I would also point out that it would appear that there has been no focus on alternative methods of disposal of this waste. I believe that it is incumbent on Environment Minister Poots to ensure that equal resources and effort are put into identifying alternative methods that may gain the approval of local people.” ENDS
