Meanwhile, Martín is adamant about the possibility that the Tenerife Environmental Complex (CAT) – the island landfill – houses an incinerator. The Cabildo announces the tender of 25,000 square meters in that space for recycling facilities with the permitted use of thermal combustion processes (pyrolysis, gasification and plasma). “It can be called by different names, but what the statement says is that with certain techniques the burning of garbage will take place. From the City Council we are not going to allow an incinerator or a plant to burn garbage, ”he assures.
Faced with this situation, the Ariquero alderman once again calls for dialogue and negotiation and raises solutions under the protection of a plan accepted by the island institution. «What is needed is to execute the Waste Management Plan approved by the Tenerife Council, an initiative that contemplates the development of organic matter treatment plants, the implementation of clean points throughout the Island and, above all, the policy of education, training and awareness of the population, “he said.
