Everyone - 'Waste to Energy 'incinerators emit huge amounts of Greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming and also act as a disincentive to improved recycling. The electricity they do produce, creates more CO2 and other greenhouse gases per unit generated than even coal or oil fired power stations. While proponents for incineration argue that incineration is better than landfill, there are much better solutions available today than incineration. These include, reducing production of non-renewables (plastics); re-using and recycling more; separation of food waste and organic materials that are so harmful in our landfills, for composting and digestion; Incineration wastes valuable resources and is potentially harming our environment in ways that aren't fully understood today by harming air quality, and releasing PM2.5 particles.
