MBM mountain answer?
MOVES to cut the huge backlog of meat and bonemeal from sites around the UK could take a step forward with the launch of a specially adapted rotary incinerator by an Anglo-Italian company.
Leeds-based Servoflame-Ciroldi claims its rotary incinerators, which retail at £2.2m and can burn up to 2t/hour, will help reduce the 199,000t MBM mountain.
Arthur Dobbin, company spokesman, said talks were being held with a number of renderers including Prosper de Mulder and midlands-based Gilbarts and Bakers.
He said at least one company, Incineration South West, had put in a tender to the Intervention Board to incinerate MBM.
At present, only the Re-Chem incinerator near Havant, Hants, is burning MBM. *
