Article 3

SCHEDULESubstitution of certain paragraphs for those contained in the List of Works in the First Schedule to the Alkali Act

(30) Gas and coke works

Works (not being producer gas works as defined in paragraph (29)) in which—

(a)coal, oil or other carbonaceous materials (excluding wood) or products of petroleum refining or natural gas or methane from coal mines or gas derived from fermentation of carbonaceous materials are handled or prepared for carbonisation or gasification or reforming and in which these materials are subsequently carbonised or gasified or reformed or odorised; or

(b)water gas is produced or purified; or

(c)coke or semi-coke or other solid smokeless fuel is produced and quenched, cut, crushed or graded; or

(50) Acrylates works

Works in which acrylates are—

(a)made or purified; or

(b)made and polymerised; or

(c)purified and polymerised; or

(d)used in the manufacture of any chemical.

(61) Incineration works

Works for—

(a)the destruction by incineration of waste chemicals or waste plastic arising from the manufacture of a chemical or the manufacture of a plastic; or

(b)the destruction by incineration, other than incidentally in the course of burning other waste, of waste chemicals being, or comprising in elemental or compound form, bromine, cadmium, chlorine, fluorine, iodine, lead, mercury, nitrogen, phosphorus, sulphur or zinc; or

(c)the destruction by incineration of clinical waste, municipal waste or any mixture thereof; or

(f)the cleaning for re-use, by burning out their residual contents, of metal containers used for the transport or storage of chemicals.

  • In this paragraph—

  • “clinical waste” has the same meaning as in the Waste Collection and Disposal Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1992(4);

  • “incineration” includes incineration by oxidation including pretreatment as well as pyrolysis or other thermal treatment processes;

  • “municipal waste” means household waste or commercial waste within the meaning of Article 36(2) and (3) of the Pollution Control and Local Government (Northern Ireland) Order 1978(5); and

  • “waste” has the same meaning as in Article 36(1) of the Pollution Control and Local Government (Northern Ireland) Order 1978.

Explanatory Note

(THis note is not part of the Order.)

The discharge of certain noxious or offensive gases from certain types of works is subject to control under the Alkali, &c. Works Regulation Act 1906 (“the Act of 1906”). Article 25(9) of the the Clean Air (Northern Ireland) Order 1981 empowers the Department to make orders varying or adding to the list of works in the Act of 1906. The existing list of such works is set out in the First Schedule to the Act of 1906, as substituted by the Alkali, &c. Works Order (Northern Ireland) 1991.

This order amends that list of works by substituting new paragraphs (30), (50), and (61) which describe gas and coke works, acrylates works, and incineration works, respectively.
