Standardizing Regulation Related to Waste Incineration

As a result of the possible dangers associated with waste incineration, potentially affected persons expect comprehensive, effective, and responsive regulation that prevents uncontrolled emissions, upsets, and worker injuries, that punishes regulatory infractions, and that promotes decontamination, rectification, and compensation for any harm done, but little data is available currently.

Nature and Context

The current state of understanding for many issues associated with incineration is such that little or no data specific to waste incineration is available for analysis. The social, psychological, and economic impacts of incineration facilities on their locales are even less well documented and understood than the health effects of waste incineration. When environmental-impact assessments are required for proposed federal or state actions, they typically must include socioeconomic-impact assessments, but the latter are often sketchy at best
