TRA and WRA: Environment Agency’s approach to fire prevention ‘unviable’

Wednesday 16th November 2016 | 0 Comments

The Tyre Recovery Association (TRA) and Wood Recyclers Association (WRA) are describing the Environment Agency’s (EA) attempt to create a single set of ‘one size fits all’ fire prevention guidelines for all sectors as ‘unviable’, a view that the association states is held by firms across the waste recovery industry. The need to store a diverse range of materials in various grades, each with differing combustibility, burn rates and fire risk, across widely differing sites, makes the adoption of a ‘catch-all’ solution impossible, they point out. Should such a policy be adopted, it would also pose a severe threat to reputable businesses, while at the same time encouraging an increase in sites exempt from regulations and which the EA admits it does not have the funds to inspect.

Also within tyre recycling we notice a trend in further improving the end-product. A further cleaned steel fraction with a density of up to 0.7 is very desirable with European steel works.”
