  • Fingerprinting emissions from waste incinerators

    The use of MWIs to dispose of materials such as plastic, glass and food waste is increasing in the UK due to EU restrictions on the use of landfill. The European Industrial Emissions Directive, which aims to protect the environment and human health, imposes strict limits on emissions of heavy metals and other pollutants from MWIs. However, the impact of MWI emissions on ambient air pollution is ...

  • Complex issues with incinerating liquid and gaseous residues

    Production processes in the chem-ical and pharmaceutical industries give rise to gaseous and liquid residues that are preferably disposed of in decentralized incinerators.
