Photogallery - Waste Incenerators Accidents in Europe
It is a well-known fact that waste landfills catch fire often. But who would imagine that waste incinerators may catch fire relatively often, too? Actually, this is rather obvious - incinerators use fire, and it can spread easily. Not only that fully uncontrolled fires take place in incinerators sometimes, but also uncontrolled releases of harmful substances occur there. Within the framework of the "Do Not Incinerate, Recycle" campaign, we made an effort to map out incinerator accidents in Europe and in the countries of Northern and Central Asia and Transcaucasia. Whereas description of certain accidents may be found in the map, photographs of the accidents, made by various photographers, often firemen themselves, are presented below.
