(2020) . From 2008–2018 bottom ashes have been monitored in six MSWI plants in the Canton […]Switzerland Incineration
Action Alert: EPA Searching for Incinerators to Quickly Conduct an Experiment On PFAS in Emissions.
Contact Your State Environmental Commissioner to Stop This From Happening in Your State The Issue: While the disposal of PFAS chemicals poses serious challenges, the rush to burn these chemicals is on, despite no evidence they can be safely incinerated. EPA is trying to find an incinerator to be part of an experiment regarding PFAS […]United States, National USA Human experiments Incineration Perfluorinated chemicals
[Investigation and Analysis of Occupational Hazards and Control Measures in Waste Incineration Power Generation Enterprises]
Abstract in English, article in Chinese: Objective: To investigate occupational hazards in waste incineration power generation enterprises. Methods: From May 2016 to September 2018, four garbage incineration power generation enterprises in different regions and scales were selected as the survey objects. Investigated and analyzed the types of occupational hazards, workplace distribution and occupational disease […]International Incineration
Toxic PFAS Fallout Found Near Incinerator in Upstate New York
PFAS contamination was found in soil and water near an incinerator in New York state that has been burning firefighting foam for the Department of Defense. Industrial chemicals known as PFAS have contaminated soil and water near an incinerator in upstate New York that has been burning firefighting foam. The facility is run by Norlite, […]United States, New York Incineration Perfluorinated chemicals

Experimental Study on Fluorine Release from Photovoltaic Backsheet Materials Containing PVF and PVDF during Pyrolysis and Incineration in a Technical Lab-Scale Reactor at Various Temperatures.
Abstract With a sharp increase in photovoltaic (PV) installations across the world, PV waste is now a relatively new addition to the e-waste category. From 45,000 tonnes in 2016, the PV waste stream is rapidly increasing and is projected to reach 60 million tonnes by 2050. Backsheets are composite structures made from several material layers […]United States, National USA Incineration
Fluoride network and circular economy as potential model for sustainable development – A review.
Highlights Industrial processes increase fluoride levels and transport in the environment. Various fluoride biological pathways increase the risk of toxicity exposure. Steering actors must be recognized to attain perpetual sustainable development. Circular economy, as a tool to sustainable development, must have same objectives. Abstract Fluorine is the most reactive elements among the halogen group and […]International Incineration
Waste containing PFAS chemicals poses conundrums
[See photos at top of original article] With few state or federal regulations existing for PFAS chemicals, the military and impacted towns face the tough question: Where to dispose of filters and waste? When carbon filters filled with firefighting foam chemicals from Bucks and Montgomery counties are burned at an incinerator in Delaware County, the […]United States, Pennsylvania Incineration Perfluorinated chemicals
New laboratory study reveals that highly-toxic hydrofluoric and hydrochloric acids are released when PTFE burns
Munich / Frankfurt am Main – The independent institute Warringtonfire Frankfurt GmbH examines impact of incineration of PTFE, Polyurethane and Polyester membrane grades in an open fire in accordance with EN ISO 5659-2 (NBS smoke chamber). Given the growing global “tourism” of used clothing and textile waste, the results of the analysis are especially critical […]Germany Incineration Perfluorinated chemicals
