The incinerator at Poolbeg this afternoon; Green Party leader Eamon Ryan

This afternoon.

Further to the release of ‘lime’ at the newly opened Poolbeg incinerator which saw eleven workers at the plant hospitalised…

The (Environmental Protection Agency) EPA said it was told the lime cloud was contained in the building and that the material was not released to the atmosphere.

The EPA is satisfied that there was no danger to the public or local community from this release,” it said.

The agency also said no rubbish was being fed into the incinerator following the incident and no burning has taken place since.

Meanwhile….

“We’ve had a concern about this incinerator since the beginning. It should not go into operation until it’s found out what is happening here…We have to make sure it’s safe,” Eamon Ryan said.

Dublin City Councillor for the Social Democrats Cian O’Callaghan said the incident was not acceptable, adding: “This is not meant to happen at all.”

    That’s why they’re commissioning it Eamon. Rather than just flicking a switch.

    …Eamon…weren’t you part of the Government when Bord Pleanala approved the Poolbeg incinerator…wasn’t John Gormless Environment Minister…you did nothing when you had power…

      Politicians aren’t allowed to influence planners or ABP. Except through actual planning policy.

      And here you are…If you’re going to dip why not flesh out your argument.

      You might get a post of your own.

    “We’ve had a concern about this incinerator since the beginning…. sez the Green Party that pushed it through when they were in government.

    They told us so. (But they were cuter if they placed bets at long odds with the bookies.)

    And there has been no danger whatever to public health, Eamonn, from carcinogenic particulates from diesel fuel.
