Reporting on incineration, ash and its environmental footprint

The purpose of this organisation is to undermine proposals for a new generation of incinerators in the UK, which would burn household waste producing greenhouse gases and other pollutants. The project will research and write a report exploring the disposal of incinerator ash, so as to identify opportunities for the development of a campaign strategy to reduce the use of incineration and the reclassification of incinerator ash as hazardous waste with its associated higher disposal costs.
