A Toxics-Free Future

Eggs have been found to be sensitive indicators of persistent organic pollutant (POP) contamination in soils or dust and are an important exposure pathway from soil pollution to humans, and eggs from contaminated areas can readily lead to exposures with exceeding thresholds for the protection of human health (Van Eijkeren, Zeilmaker et al. 2006, Hoogenboom, ten Dam et al. 2014, Piskorska-Pliszczynska, Mikolajczyk et al. 2014).

(ECNS) - A non-governmental organization (NGO) report has revealed that 121 waste incineration plants in China have refused to disclose data on their pollution emissions, especially the whereabouts of fly ash, according to caixin.com on Wednesday.

The report suggests that fly ash, which originates from the burning of household rubbish, is not fully understood and could be more damaging than was previously thought.

IPEN organized a successful side event during the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions' Conference of the Parties: "Waste & Synergies between Basel and Stockholm Conventions: Understanding the Links and Implications" Alan Watson (Public Interest Consultants and IPEN), Jindrich Petrlik (Arnika Toxics and Waste Programme and IPEN's Dioxin, PCBs and Waste Working Group), and Jim Puckett (Basel Action Network) made presentations.

Con preocupación nos enteramos del interés que tienen el Ayuntamiento del municipio de Empalme y la empresa WestFab de México, de instalar una planta de gasificación para convertir la basura en energía: la falsa premisa de que esta es energía limpia y que no contamina.

A new literature review pertaining to emissions from burning plastics in domestic fireplaces, household stoves and boilers, with a special focus on persistent organic pollutants (POPs), has been prepared for Arnika and Center of Environmental Solutions by Alan Watson C.Eng (Public Interest Consultants).
