A Toxics-Free Future

Incineration

IPEN´s Dioxin Working Group, together with the Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives (GAIA) and Health Care Without Harm (HCWH), has sent an open letter to the European Union to oppose European Commission-funded construction of medical waste incinerators in the Pacific region. The letter is based on the analysis of the Pacific Hazardous Waste Management Project (Pac Waste) by IPENer Pawel Gluszynski in Poland.
