HMIP under fire over control of dioxins from Coalite works

Greenpeace has rounded on HM Inspectorate of Pollution (HMIP) for authorising an in-house incinerator at Coalite Chemicals' chlorophenol works near Bolsover, Derbyshire, after discovering that wastes generated at the works contain dioxins at levels many times higher than detected by HMIP itself.1 Meanwhile, it has emerged that HMIP has joined the list of bodies contemplating legal action against Coalite over dioxin contamination in the locality.
