(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.

Aileen Lucero, Coordinator of the waste and pollution watchdog EcoWaste Coalition exclaimed in indignation as citizens hit the streets anew to stage a protest amid a new controversy involving the discovery of 48 more container vans of garbage from Canada.
