Incinerator plants are the source of serious toxic pollutants

“In a House of Lords enquiry on 14th  April 1999, Environment Minister

Michael Meacher said,

“Incinerator plants are the source of serious toxic pollutants: dioxins;

furans; acid gases; particulates; heavy metals; and they all need to

be treated very seriously. There must be absolute prioritisation given

to human health requirements and protection of the environment. I

repeat the emissions from incinerator processes are extremely toxic.

Some of the emissions are carcinogenic… We must use every

reasonable instrument to eliminate them altogether”.
