Reports and Publications

 

Zero Waste Maldives is working to increase the awareness and knowledge of the public as well as government stakeholders when it comes to waste related issues. To enable this access to information is key. We will be making all our publications and research available to the public as well as compile and aggregate as much as possible all information that is locally available in the waste sector.

Incinerators are facilities that treat waste by burning it. Among the most aggressively promoted incinerators are “waste-to-energy” facilities. Not only do they claim to make waste “disappear,” they also claim to produce energy during the process.

 

In recent years, the incinerator industry has tried to expand their sector by marketing their facilities as “Waste to Energy” (WTE), using misleading claims of “reducing climate pollution”, and being a “clean energy source”. This document dispels some of the most common myths about incinerators with real facts.

Epidemiological studies provide sufficient evidence of direct health impacts of incinerators, which range from neoplasia to congenital anomalies, infant deaths and miscarriage. While more research can be done on newer incinerators when enough data is collected over time, the findings of existing studies suggest serious risks associated with incinerators, both for nearby and distant populations.

We have too much plastic that has nowhere to go… Can we just burn it? Short answer: no!

Burning is the most harmful way to handle plastic waste. It turns one form of pollution into others, including air emissions, toxic ash, and wastewater.
