The process of incineration marks a real threat to our breathable air. The concentrations of gaseous and particulate exhaust from an incinerator at exit into the air are so high that it means they are instant death. It is only by mixing with the air that the concentrations of these air additives are diluted enough to become statistically non-harmful. Basically an incinerator poisons the air! Dispersion principles are employed to try and render such poison safe!
As a society we are wasteful. We have also now fully commercialised dealing with that waste. Incineration was once considered the cheapest option, but in a world of limited resources and increasing population, reuse and recycling become ever more important and commercially viable.
Incineration of our waste must become an historical aberration.
