EPA proposing to grant Shell a pollution license and it costs €126 to object

On the 13th of April, the EPA proposed to grant Shell an Industrial Emissions Licence to operate Bellanaboy refinery.

This proposed decision can be objected to but it will cost €126 to object or cost €100 to ask for an oral hearing.  That it costs residents of the area  €126 to put in their views of pollution being allowed in their area is a disgrace.

The proposed decision can be viewed here: http://www.epa.ie/licences/lic_eDMS/090151b28052f9be.pdf

or the entire application can be viewed here: http://www.epa.ie/terminalfour/ippc/ippc-view.jsp?regno=P0738-03#.VTK_6u...

The deadline for submissions is the 11th of May.

 

This licence is needed after the High Court quashed the previous EPA licence after a court case had been taken by Martin Harrington.  http://www.rte.ie/news/2013/1015/480557-corrib-gas-epa/
