Mun Waste Incinerators in Thailand

Dioxin hotspot report - case study of municipal waste incinerators in Phuket and Samui.

Groups belonging to ThaiPEN documented existing and potential health, environmental, social and economical impacts from dioxins released from two large-scale municipal waste incinerators operating in Phuket and Samui islands, having a capacity of 250 kg/h and 140 kg/h respectively. The report primarily addressed dioxin pollution from the incinerators with the intent of raising both public and government awareness, and making recommendations on how to address the problem as well as provide a framework for NGO involvement in government processes.
