BBC Radio 4's "Costing the Earth" programme broadcast a feature on incineration on 19th/20th Feb entitled "Dash for Ash".
The feature gave fantastic coverage for the GlosVAIN campaign with Javelin Park and a host of familiar themes from our campaign right at the centre of it!
The programme features:
* Excellent interview with GlosVAIN chair Sue Oppenheimer up on Haresfield Beacon
* The Avonmouth MBT plant - held up as a real alternative, as with other advanced thermal treatment options that leave incineration in the shade
* Trashed film and an interview with Jeremy Irons and the film's Director
* Professor Vyvyan Howard on need for precautionary approach to health risks (one of our planning objections based on a report we commissioned from him).
