Environmental monitoring around Firth of Forth
INEOS takes care to ensure that its ongoing operations do nothing to affect the important environmental site in and around the Firth of Forth which has been classified as a Site of Special Scientific Interest for its ecology, geology and bird life. The Firth of Forth is also a Wetland of International Importance and as such is protected by the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) to guard against any adverse development. To provide the required assurance INEOS carries out surveys of the mudflats at Kerse of Kinneil, the rocky shoreline near Hound Point and the seabed around the effluent outfalls from Kinneil and Dalmeny.
