Ministry denies that Munxar manure treatment plant started operating

The Gozo Ministry denied what it described as a false impression given by the Nationalist Party spokespersons, two days ago, that the manure treatment plant at Munxar started operating. The Ministry said that the Opposition should inform itself before inventing, while it explained that up till now there is only an interest by the private sector for a research on a solution to the environmental challenge that exists in Gozo so that farms manure is recycled to prevent damage to the sewage system or to ground water.


The Gozo Ministry added that the private operator presented a proposal consisting of technology tested in other European countries which treats and separates manure on the inside and returns the solid waste to the herdsmen.  It further stated that the decisions will be taken according to independent and scientific analysis, and with the necessary consultation, and not with haphazard partisan games.
