Gloucestershire Incinerator Provider Chosen? – Is it the “right” one?

Published On December 15, 2011 » 1128 Views» Gloucester

Heard a strong rumour that the provider of the incinerator has been chosen.  A quote I have seen says “Urbaser Balfour Beatty has been chosen to lead on Gloucestershire’s residual project which will divert waste from landfill and save millions of pounds”  

As you may remember from one of my previous posts, while I’m concerned at having an incinerator on my doorstep, I also want to ensure that if we have to have one, then we have the right one, and out of the two left, then I thought that the UBB offering was by far the best offering.  I say this from an engineering and systems background.  Out of the two, they have really thought about the issues and had the greatest amount of development since the last presentation.  The other did not seem to have much development, just lots of money to throw at the community to make them look nice.

More as I get it!
