Irish Cement have applied for an EPA license to burn Industrial Waste - solvents, plastics, tyres, sewage - at their 35 year-old Cement Kiln in the Limerick suburbs.
Limerick Against Pollution, a group of local residents formed to challenge this profit-driven toxic risk, have brought a challenge to An Bord Pleanala and raised almost 2,000 objections with the EPA.
In support of this and other anti-incineration campaigns, Professor Paul Connett, Professor Emeritus in Environmental Chemistry at St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY, a leading Zero Waste advocate and an expert in the toxic risks of incineration has kindly agreed to give a series of public talks in Limerick, Cork, Galway and Dublin from June 7th to 21st.
We have arranged a public meeting event this coming Friday 9th June in the Strand Hotel Limerick with special guest speaker Prof Paul Connett from 7:30-9:30pm.
We can work together to ensure that this application does not go ahead and protect the air quality of our city for one and all.
