Police have launched an investigation after what appears to be human waste was found in a shipment of drinks cans at a Co Antrim factory. Multinational Coca-Cola said it was probing the matter with the PSNI. It added products currently on sale were not affected. The night shift at Lisburn's Coca-Cola plant was disrupted last week when a container of cans thought to have arrived from Germany clogged up the machines - only for workers to discover a number were filled with what looked like human waste. "It was absolutely horrible, and the machines had to be turned off for about 15 hours to be cleaned," a source said. "It was unusual because normally the cans come from somewhere else in the UK, but this time they apparently came from Germany. "The rumour is that some poor immigrants could ...

What is the effect of pumping radioactive waste into the sea? It had been thought that it remained in the sediment of the sea bed, but now there are other theories; can we afford to take the risk? What sort of future are we making? This film is of historical interest but the issues raised are still current.

This is a case study of how Flexus round baling systems are used for handling and transportation of RDF/SRF in round bales with shipping vessels for sea transport. With the round baling technology, any port can handle waste management without any extra measures. The sealed bales are safe, clean and hygienic. In this case the ship is loaded with around 600 bales per hour, and it is fully loaded in around 20 hours, i.e. 3000 tons of waste loaded onto a transport, safe, clean and easy. - Wrapped round bales have an anaerobic chemistry inside the bale, which eliminates methanogenic activities. This prevents any spontaneous combustion in the baled material, making it safe to transport by land and sea. - Having the baled material tightly sealed in a round bale also retains all the energy and ...
Waste Prevention and Recycling is something that touches every household in Northern Ireland. We are about to enter a new era in waste management, one which will see us revolutionise not just the way we handle our waste but also how we view it. If we don't change how we manage our waste, we'll fail to meet vital targets, such as those set out in the European Landfill Directive. As we shall see failure could result in substantial fines, amounting to as much as an extra £100 every year for every household rates bill across the north west.
If the world's population lived as we do here in Ireland, it would take almost 4 planets to satisfy our demand for resources. The drive to consume and then dispose is a defining characteristic of modern society and although Ireland has taken large steps toward redressing our waste, we still have a ways to go. This penultimate episode of Eco Eye 13 examines how we can no longer afford to see our waste as something to be disposed of and forgotten. After visiting a recycling centre outside Copenhagen Duncan returns to Ireland to discover that people. environmental groups and even companies across the country are rethinking waste and what it means for us and the environmen

Even though landfill usage in Ireland has dramatically reduced, we're still producing enormous amounts of waste. Some is shipped abroad, some recycled, some will go to Dublins new incinerator yet plastic is still turning up in our water and our food. Duncan travels to NUIG in Galway and uncovers worrying research there which sets him off on a journey to discover what communities and businesses in Ireland are doing to reduce, reuse, recycle and rot.
