Incinerator Legislation

Incineration is now a mature industry and many countries have their own specific legislation to cover the burning of different waste types. Our machines meet or exceed the following guidelines which cover the UK and the EU. We always recommend that you seek independent advice on planning and possible permits required to operate with your local authority or regional government agent.

When the Waste Incineration Directive applies

The WID applies to the incineration and co-incineration of both hazardous and non-hazardous waste. The definition of the three terms ‘waste’, ‘incineration plant’ and ‘co-incineration plant’ determine the scope of the WID. This is discussed in detail below but the following flow chart may help to provide initial screening to determine if the WID applies to a given activity.

Meaning of the term ‘waste’
For the purposes of the WID ‘waste’ means any solid or liquid waste as defined in Article 1(1)(a) of the Waste Framework Directive (Article 3 of the WID). Reference should be made to Guidance on the Waste Framework Directive.
