"Open burning is not an environmental acceptable solution for any kind of waste," the technical working group emphasized. "Incineration under environmentally sound conditions with energy recovery should be the preferred option compared to landfilling or incineration without energy recovery."

Since incineration without energy recovery does not contribute to saving of resources or reduction of climate change gases, the technical group advises that "this process should be replaced by processes recovering energy as far as possible."

The expert group warns that incomplete incineration of plastic wastes that contain chlorinated compounds and brominated flame retardants will release hazardous doxins and furans into the air. But these wastes can be incinerated safely, the guidelines say.

"Research and practice developed over the past 10 years have shown conclusively that, under strict operating conditions, plastic wastes, even if the mixture is rich of PVC, can be incinerated safely and effectively. Consistent, high temperature combustion will recover the maximum energy from the fuel and ensure the complete breakdown of toxic organic compounds."
