Stop using waste incineration in Jordan

This petition had 3,768 supporters

To prevent the emissions of highly toxic compounds such as mercury and dioxin, that are either released to atmosphere as emissions or to soil through ash dumping contaminating the environment and causing serious health impacts in many communities.

Waste incineration ( Dioxin Factories) can never be ecologically sustainable and produce little if any renewable energy.

The intended waste incinerators will be operating in proximity to communities (East Amman, Ramtha, ….etc).

The fact that they operate does not mean they are socially acceptable or result in any environmental or social benefits but, they can make proponents very wealthy.

Disposing of incinerator residues (ash and char) has also been problematic due to the large volumes and toxicity of the material.
