For those interested in the proposal for Dow's Midland Incinerator,
currently on exhibition

Here is the url http://www.independent.co.uk/story.jsp?story=370029 of a 17
January 2003 story from the UK paper The Independent about how Incinerator
curbs aim to limit toxins

Tougher rules on hazardous emissions from waste incinerators were announced
by the Government  on 16 January, 2003.

Michael Meacher, the Environment minister, said new limits would reduce
dioxins in the air emissions to no more than one part in ten billion to
protect the environment and human health.
