Metro Van garbage plan: green or green wash? | The Vancouver ...
and let Metro know how you want the region to handle our garbage in the decades to come. To bury or to burn. Is that really the question? If you’ve attended one of Metro Vancouver’s public consultations on garbage management for our region, you may believe it is. I went to the May 19 consultation in Vancouver hoping to walk away with a better idea of the options for dealing with our ever growing pile of collective refuse. For two hours, Metro Vancouver bureaucrats and politicians, industry reps and lobbyists talked of mass garbage burning in a proposed $400 million incinerator. It wasn’t until Susan Maxwell spoke that ... market research, surveys and trends

RACHEL's Hazardous Waste News #312
An internal memo sent to all 10 regional offices of EPA [U.S. Environmental Protection Agency] by Sylvia Lowrance, EPA Director of Solid Waste, confirms that hazardous waste incinerators cannot meet EPA requirements for near-total destruction of hazardous wastes. (See RHWN #280 .) EPA's incinerator regulations require 99.99 percent destruction of all hazardous wastes and 99.9999 percent destruction of especially-hazardous wastes such as PCBs and dioxins. The Lowrance memo dated Sept. 22, 1992, and interviews with Sonya Sasseville of Ms. Lowrance's staff, confirm that the agency possessed scientific information as ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
To Burn or Not to Burn, a Hot Topic
It is an unavoidable fact that Beijing must use incinerators to handle garbage as its landfills swell, said Moller, managing director of COWI China. "The current smoke depollution technology has no difficulty to process the hazardous emissions if you can afford the huge investment," he says responding to questions about toxic dioxins that may emanate from incineration. He said the so-called "smoke depollution" system usually accounts for 30 to 50 percent of the cost of a whole waste-to-energy unit. "During incineration, the pollution from the trash moves into the flue gas and the slag. The flue gas ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

"Opposition to this project has mostly been focused on the landfill aspect of our proposal," said Wallace. "They have overlooked the fact that diversion is a key component of our plan and that waste can also be an energy resource." He said he believes the site is well managed and another ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

EPA today proposed flexible, common-sense rules that will dramatically reduce public health risks from dioxin, mercury and other air pollutants emitted by medical waste incinerators. EPA is asking for broad public comment on this proposal. The proposal would reduce incinerator emissions of nine air pollutants suspected of causing cancer or other serious health effects by 88,000 tons or 93 percent yearly. The pollutants are dioxin, lead, carbon monoxide, mercury, particulates (dust and soot), sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, cadmium and hydrogen chloride. Medical waste incinerators are an important source of dioxin air ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
