A recent World Bank report confirms that decades of incineration has not helped decrease global waste volumes but instead has abetted the global waste crisis and it has furthered analyzed by 2050. The world expects to generate 3.40 billion tons of waste annually, increasing drastically from today’s 2.01 billion tons. This is alarming. What is more troubling is the burning of waste in the cement kilns in the United States. It is not climate-friendly, and burning waste emits greenhouse gases and other toxic hazards, i.e., toxicants including cancer-causing endocrine, and immune-disrupting dioxins and furans; heavy metals including mercury, cadmium, and lead to name only a few.
