Orimulsion gets all clear - but upgrading plans to stay secret

PowerGen has won permission from HM Inspectorate of Pollution (HMIP) to continue burning Orimulsion at its stations at Ince in Cheshire and Richborough in Kent, though it must fit sulphur dioxide abatement equipment by 1998. However, HMIP now says that the upgrading programmes for these and all other power stations will not be entered onto the integrated pollution control (IPC) public register - leaving key decisions over the UK's strategy for curbing acid gas emissions shrouded in secrecy.
