The AAI itself recognizes this danger when the environmental impact statement establishes as a condition the fulfillment of a technical instruction on storage of flammable and combustible liquids, requiring a double security wall for two deposits: the reception and storage of waste ships move, and the storage and shipment of recovered waste. Marpol Alicante SL - - In addition, the company requires a deposit of 70,000 euros and insurance worth 1 million, and limits on the emission of odors and noise are set, you can create other nuisances to neighboring plant environment "said the alderman.


"In our arguments we proposed that the Port is only one installation for the reception and temporary storage of waste is authorized and that the facilities for treatment they will reside, to be dangerous in industrial land outside the Port and far enough from residential areas . Specifically we propose that the APD sector 21, next to the highway and surrounded by Puerto industrial estates, should welcome these facilities for treatment or recovery.
