* Stop Incinerators and Waste-to-Energy Burners

The Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League has issued a Position Statement on “Incinerators and Waste-to-Energy Burners”.

In it they point out that “While some of these new incinerator technologies-gasification, plasma-arc, and pyrolysis-claim lower emissions than their predecessors, all of them would have stacks that emit pollution to the environment.  Incineration creates contaminants like nitrogen oxide, soot, and dioxins, emits metals like lead, mercury and cadmium, and adds greenhouse gases to the earth’s atmosphere.”
