Cre­ma­to­rium fined for pol­lu­tion

Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

Va­len­cia city hall has fined the lo­cal cre­ma­to­rium €200,000 for not com­ply­ing with the max­i­mum al­lowed limit on smoke emis­sions.

An eval­u­a­tion per­formed every three years showed that two of the chim­neys op­er­ated by the cre­ma­to­rium emit a larger amount of pol­lut­ing sub­stances into the at­mos­phere than is legally al­lowed, namely volatile or­ganic com­pounds and hy­drochlo­ric acid.

Fur­ther­more, the max­i­mum tem­per­a­ture at which the fumes are emit­ted do not reach any­where near the 850ºC that is re­quired.
