The fumes of wrath: in a Paris suburb, the largest waste incinerator in Europe could be

poisoning locals​
École de journalisme de Sciences Po / 19 avril 2022 

The two chimneys of Ivry-sur-Seine’s waste incinerator have been releasing their white fumes into the sky of Paris for more than 50 years. Now, after a study uncovered “exceptionally high” levels of certain pollutants around the plan, locals wonder if the fumes have been poisoning them.

Biomonitoring in Spanisch Basque Country. In the Northwest of Spain, just across the border of France, in the Basque Country, Euskal Herria, an incinerator has been built in the municipal district of Donostia-San Sebastián, in the place called Zubieta, finished in 2019, and coming in operation in 2020. The complexity of the chemical content of today’s household and industrial waste presents a challenge for turning modern waste into energy in (WtE) waste incinerators.  How safe are incinerators? ToxicoWatch performs biomonitoring research in the environment of the incinerator in Zubieta.
