About this book

Waste incineration is finding increasing favour as a waste disposal method. This study considers the place of incineration, reviewing the emissions and environmental impacts of incineration and other pollution control strategies, specifying research needed to the emissions of trace metals and organic micropollutants, and the methodologies for environmental impact assessment. A dispassionate view is presented of the various scientific and technical views involved.


Incineration as a waste management option, J. Petts; pollutants from incineration - an overview, P. Williams; recovering energy from waste - emissions and their control, G. Ree; organic micropollutant emissions from waste incineration, G. Eduljee, pilot-scale research on the fate of trace metals in incineration, G. Carroll; the US approach to incinerator regulation, E. Steverson; environmental assessment and incineration, D. Harrop.
