Toxic Ash Poisons Our Food Chain

 

This report was prepared by IPEN in cooperation with Arnika (Czech Republic) and National Toxics Network (Australia) to address a major source of POPs contamination of the environment that is often overlooked, underestimated or incorrectly classified in risk assessments, exposure scenarios and regulatory controls on waste. Ash and other residues from waste incineration contain dioxins, furans (PCDD/Fs) and a range of other highly toxic POPs at levels which are a threat to human health and the environment. Current management practices and regulatory threshold levels for POPs
that contaminate incinerator residues are not preventing releases of POPs into agricultural settings, the food chain and the broader environment.
