- Zero air emission, no smokestack, no downwind public health risk or cross-border acid rain deforestation.
- Excess water available for agriculture and drinking.
- Assuming commercialisation, projected CO2 emission savings = 3.2 million tonnes within 15years from 20 plants.
- Fast track GHG emission reduction. Replacement and/or conversion of old uneconomic smokestack industries.
- Cleanup of old leaching landfill sites with indirect benefit to aquifers, the marine food chain and water supply.
- Energy production from multiple waste streams and/or renewable fuels reducing reliance on fossil fuels.
- Offers reduced or capped local community environmental taxes from lower waste disposal ''gate fee'' charges.
- Reduces reliance on landfill, possible deterrent against ''fly'' tipping from low waste disposal charges.
- A true materials recycling process. Pre-sorting not essential, reducing the need for public compliance to sort waste.
- Inner city location possible due to low profile and safety features, resulting in reduced waste transportation imprint.
- Embedded value from carbon dioxide tax credits in accordance with Kyoto Treaty. Accredited by DTI.
- High EfW/CHP efficiency reducing energy costs for industry and increasing industrial competitive capability.
- Reduced importation of fuels/energy supply with associated reduction in balance of trade foreign exchange loss.
- Stimulation of industrial growth around ECLIPS sites from by-product sales and reduced costs of industrial gases.
- Higher employment created locally and overseas from construction and promotion of innovative UK technology.
- Addresses media, public and political concern for pollution by incineration. Overcomes ''NIMBY'' objection.
- Surpasses worldwide environmental emission standards. Potential for government to be environmental World leader.
- Enables governments to meet all EU landfill directives - saving £0.5 million/day penalty.
- Political vote winner - lower waste disposal charges enabling capped or reduced environmental community taxes.
