RE: Recycling vs Incineration - New Scientist 22/11/97
What is the estimated amount of dioxin released from the incineration of one ton of MSW. In Pakistan where I live (and in many developing countries) trash burning within residential areas (without any incinerator) is the one of the common disposal method of MSW. Obviuosly temperature is not that high in this type of burning. What could be typical range of other pollutants like HCl, NOx, CO, mercury etc. in this case per ton of MSW.
