The Cremation Of Trash Problems

Today the accumulation of garbage is still a significant, causing various types of pollution problem and that it plans to persist. One of the methods used for their disposal is incineration plants, but actually cause worse evils to the environment.


The incineration of waste does not mean their elimination, but his transformation in ashes and gases whose effect on the environment is much more toxic than the products in its solid state.

While many incinerators have systems to filter and wash the fumes, none is fully effective and they are far from it.

It must be borne in mind that a plant with 99.99% efficiency expels the atmosphere several tons of toxic waste per year.

Among those eliminated gases have been detected toxic metals, lead, mercury and cadmium, and so hazardous products such as PCBs and dioxins, substances that accumulate in the fatty tissues and are highly carcinogenic.
