[GreenYes] Re: EU conclusion on bioreactors


Hi Helen ~
 
My sense is that the EU Directive was promulgated before the concept of bioreactors was fully developed.
 
It seems to me not a rejection, per se, but selection of a different path, when fewer pathes were available.
 
And, the EU still allows organics in landfills, thus those landfills still have the long term issues related to organics to deal with.

Interesting question raised here: since the EU Directive set limits on the % of organics in landfills doesn't this amount to a de-facto rejection of bioreactor landfills?

Hi Eric ~
 
Could you provide an official EU or other European agency document that shows that they have examined and rejected bioreactors "in any and all forms and as unsafe and unable to keep pollution from the environment"?
 
I served on a committee that looked at accelerating the time frame at which waste disposal sites would degrade material in them and looked at what was going on in the EU,  but was not fortunate enough to come up with any references that included that conclusion.
 
Thanks much,
 
John

  Never mind that Europe looked at bioreactors long ago and rejected them in any and all forms as unsafe and unable to keep pollution from the environment.
