The Environment Agency wants your comments on its proposed technical guidance for appropriate measures for permitted facilities that biologically treat waste.
This guidance will apply to:
- aerobic and anaerobic treatment of biodegradable organic wastes, for example, by composting, anaerobic digestion and mechanical and biological treatment
- treating sewage sludge using any of the given biological processes
- storing recovered material (compost and digestate)
- aerated lagoons and activated sludge (as a waste-water treatment)
This consultation from the Environment Agency runs from 10 July until 21 August 2020.
