In Europe, waste incinerators are on the rise, often being promoted as a waste to energy solution of our waste. The way emissions are measured only represents a tiny timeframe of the incinerator’s output. Zero Waste Europe coordinated biomonitoring research concerning emissions possible related to waste incineration across Europe, together with ToxicoWatch, Hnuti Duha, Ziedine Ekonomika, and Ecologists en Accion Spain. Biomonitoring in this research are measurements of pollutants of incomplete combustion, like dioxins, PCBs, PAH, and PFAS in the surrounding environment of an incinerator, and can be found within living organisms.
