Morley uses health study to urge building of new waste facilities

The Government has urged councils to "press ahead" with approving planning applications for waste facilities, and accept incineration as a "sustainable waste management" option, following a long-awaited review of the health and environmental effects of waste facilities.1 However, a key weakness is that, rather than taking a life-cycle approach, the study focuses on waste facilities' direct emissions. It thereby fails to consider the choice of waste management options from the point of view of resource efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions.
