Lagan waste fuel burn provokes protests

Local residents are furious after a cement company was granted permission to incinerate up to 50,00t of meat and bone each year. The cattle wast will be burned in kilns at the site of Lagan Cement close to Kinnegad, Co Westmeat, Ireland.

Cattle waste will help slash the firm’s running costs as it is much cheaper to use than conventional fuel.Locals claimed the waste, which will arrive in sealed containers, is a danger to public health but the go-ahead was granted by An Bord Pleanala.
