Urge Dairygold and Norwegian company Tine to rethink their plan to release 4 million litres of Fat Oil and Grease (FOG)per day into the upper harbour at Rathcoursey.
Why is this important?
The impact of the daily load of 4million litres of fat oil and grease solution on the harbour it’s nature reserves and it’s ecosystem has not been adequately investigated or modelled. The pipe line is simply the shortest route to the sea from the factory. There are other options such as putting the discharge point way out to sea using the Ballycotton gas pipeline. The cheapest solution is rarely the best solution.
