RESET Incinerators!


On April 10, the employee Romano Prodi was asked to abolish the financing of refuse incinerators and electricity generation based on fossil fuels (coal, oil, by-products of oil refining) through item A3 of our Enel utility bills.
Only in Italy, are these considered to be sources of renewable (and similar) energy and thus have a contribution that should go to the true renewables: solar, wind, water. Even though forbidden by the European Union, and Italy is subject to an infraction procedure.
It should be remembered that the employee Prodi whose Energy leader Loyola De Palacio said on 20.11.2003: “the non-biodegradable fraction of the refuse cannot be considered to be a source of renewable energy”.
The finance goes to the usual well-known ones. To the multi-utilities with incinerators, to Api with its generating stations at Falconara and then to Edison, EniPower, Enel etc. Burning off the by-products of oil refining at Sarroch (Cagliari) and Priolo Gargallo (Siracusa), Moratti and Garrone pay for the acquisitions by Inter and Sampdoria even with the electricity bills of Milan and Genoa fans. Where is the football fairness?
Read the list of those who have benefited from Cip6 financing in 2006 and on the official site of the Authority dell’Energia {Energy Authority} the summaries for 2003-2004 with the percentages of the first 10 companies that have grabbed financing for similar sources and false renewables: we find: Asm Brescia, the multinational Fooster&Wheeler (that builds incinerators among other things), Sarlux (oil, Moratti family) Erg (oil, Garrone family), Edison (gasifiers), ApiEnergia… (oil) We’re talking about financing for about 3,100,000,000 Euro in 2005 (2,400,000,000 in 2004).
Apart from the Cip6, there’s the new frontier of 'Green Certificates' and it’s still them that benefits from them. With our money.
All this is happening to the detriment of the true renewables that are receiving only a minimal part of the funds. These tumour machines are still in existence because we are financing them using a mechanism that is considered illegal by the European Union. We are financing them with the electricity bills.
We are paying for renewables and we are creating tumour-factories. The investors on the Stock Exchange want more and more incinerators, gasifiers “clean” generating stations fuelled by coal.
They are pre-booking places in the other world for all of us and meanwhile they are enjoying being capitalists with our money.
In Parliament there are those who are trying to abolish this “drugged” mechanism of the Cip6- Certificati Verdi, but the transverse lobby is resisting. From AN to DS passing by Forza Italia, Margherita, Rosa nel Pugno, Udc.

Against this scandal a campaign called RESET Incinerators has started.

1 – To raise awareness about the damage caused by incinerators and on possible alternatives (Zero Refuse strategies, integrated systems with reduction at the source, differentiated collection at the door, ‘cold’ biological processing ) the Meetups in the whole of Italy are going into the streets in loads of Italy’s cities on Saturday 2 December. Go for it people!

2 - On the Internet there’s an online petition called 'RESET Incinerators'. It’s addressed to the European Commission and the Italian Government to ask for an end to financing of incinerators and similar sources.

3 - Buying the electronic microscope. It’s nearly there….

Let’s save our lives and the lives of our children! RESET!

Dear Beppe,

I write you in English even if I am an Italian citizen, which however lives abroad. Yesterday I found in internet a shocking news which, if true, will make the petrol, idrogene, ethanol and other chemical shits like that completely not necessary for as fuel for cars.

After fourteen years of research and development, Guy Negre (a french researcher) has developed an engine that could become one of the biggest technological advances of this century. Its application to Compressed Air Technology(CAT) vehicles gives them significant economical and environmental advantages. With the incorporation of bi-energy (compressed air + fuel) the CAT Vehicles have increased their driving range to close to 2000 km with zero pollution in cities and considerably reduced pollution outside urban areas.
The application of the MDI engine in other areas, outside the automotive sector, opens a multitude of possibilities in nautical fields, co-generation, auxiliary engines, electric generators groups, etc. Compressed air is a new viable form of power that allows the accumulation and transport of energy. MDI is very close to initiating the production of a series of engines and vehicles. The company is financed by the sale of manufacturing licenses and patents all over the world.
