The ERA Board has considered and approved two authorisations for improvements and extensions to existing waste facilities.

The Authority approved a WasteServ Malta Ltd proposal for a variation to a permit IP 0004/07/C in relation to the thermal treatment facility at Albert Town, Marsa. The application included changes to the facility such as the introduction of a dual fuel burner, and upgrades to its odour abatement and autoclave equipment.

During the same sitting, the ERA Board also approved the operation of a new WasteServ installation for the temporary storage and limited processing of recyclable waste, such as wood, mattresses and expanded polystyrene (IP 00102/22). This installation is located at WasteServ’s facilities in Hal Far.
