1 Malesice incineration

2 Background Information The construction of the massive municipal waste incinerator in Praha-Malesice began in 1988, although the origins of the project can be traced back to 1984. Children of the Earth joined the campaign against the incinerator quite late, in 1996. " The Prague Citizens - Petition for the Reduction of Dioxin Emissions" was initiated the same year. A certain phase of our project ended with the opening of the incinerator and the creation of the Citizens - Commission for the Control of the Malesice Incinerator in 1998. The campaign still continues. The construction of the massive municipal waste incinerator in Praha-Malesice began in 1988, although the origins of the project can be traced back to 1984.

3 Economic aspects The economic considerations proved to be very important, especially after a journalist from Mlada fronta Dnes found out that the city magistrate wanted to use 12,60 Cz crowns out of every 42 crowns paid by each resident per month as a subsidy for waste incineration in the Malesice incinerator, and that it wanted to do that in spite of the fact that the incinerator did not run full-time yet.

As in the case of the incinerator in Liberec, the city of Prague has become enslaved by the economic burden generated by the incinerator. This enslavement is codified in a contract with the Fund of National Property (bureau that oversees privatization of former state companies), according to which the city must operate the incinerator for at least 15 years. This means that for 15 years the city will have to subsidize the operation of the incinerator regardless of its profitability.

4 Obtaining of information and the Right to Information about the Environment Act A number of experts contacted us in regards to dioxins. Some opponents of the incinerator proved to be good sources of information, as well (e.g. Sterboholy council members). Some figures and information was obtained from public media, others were released by Prague Services and the city magistrate during debates and seminars, still others were obtained by journalists investigating the case.

Starting July 1, 1998, we began to make an extensive use of the Right to Information about the Environment Act ( bill no. 123/98). Moreover, the public relations policy of Prague Services changed to become more open in releasing information.

Moreover, the public relations policy of Prague Services changed to become more open in releasing information. Finally, we found it nearly always practical to request the needed information in the very " lion´s pit," so to say. Therefore, we often requested and obtained information from Prague Services directly.

5 Waste economy Put production on expenditure of waste to the minimal measure Put production on expenditure of waste to the minimal measure Use the waste again Use the waste again Heat treatment only waste which is not recyclable Heat treatment only waste which is not recyclable

6 Process of liquidation Each of vehicle with the waste is weighted on arrival. Vehicles pass through detection system for searching for radiation. Waste, on witch is something like this found, is rejected. Vehicles drive to the ramp and dump the load after the weighing. Each of vehicle with the waste is weighted on arrival. Vehicles pass through detection system for searching for radiation. Waste, on witch is something like this found, is rejected. Vehicles drive to the ramp and dump the load after the weighing. But first garbage has to be sorted and crashed(ciggarets, cloth, etc.). After it is weighted and transfered to the holes by the derrick, it travers to the boiler. In the Boyler room are placed four boilers with cylider grids. Every single one is capable to burn almost 15 tonns of gabage per hour, create 36 tonns of steam of pressure 1,37MPa. This steam is delivered to the energy network of Pražská Teplárenská a.s. But first garbage has to be sorted and crashed(ciggarets, cloth, etc.).

7 Boilers are water-tubes with one tube and simple cyrculation of water-steam mixture. Burning Chamber is all-metal with outer isolation and plathing.

When the garbage is burned there is scoria, whitch contains a lot of metal, whitch is after separation of scoria using for steel production. Boilers are producing burned charges then they are traveling to the washer, where they are cleaned from injurants. In the and of process are the burned Charges leader to the smokestack. Efore the ester smokestack, they have to be testet for emmisions(concentration of injurants).
