Big change on the cards for biomass industry – Business News | Latest News Stories | The Irish Times – Mon, May 26, 2014

For anyone concerned about carbon emissions and the environment, apparently a possible solution to a lot of the problems relating to bio mass has been found in Belfast. The technology does not need massive amounts of electricity or gas in order to dry the material, reducing the emissions and costs involved.

The processing could take place in big trailers, pulled by trucks from one place to another and would be more efficient, producing higher volumes than a stationery plant. So if you are an out of work lorry driver with a HGV licence, there could be lots of job openings on the horizon.

I wonder if the transport will be deemed as Hazardous Waste, as it would contain sewerage along with other bio degradable materials. If there was a road accident and a major spillage occurred, hopefully the worst thing that could happen to the area would be the smell – and a lot of power washing. Anyone living in rural Ireland will be well accustomed to a similar ‘aroma’ when slurry spreading takes place. It certainly beats an oil spillage or worse still, nuclear waste leakage. I would rather stink to high heaven than suffer the consequences of the latter. Read all about it here:
