Groups petition US EPA to force reporting of waste incinerator emissions

Read the full story from Reuters.

Environmental groups on Monday petitioned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to require companies to disclose the chemicals discharged from waste incinerators and plants that claim to recycle plastic waste into fuel.

Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) and the Energy Justice Network filed the petition with the agency because the toxic chemical emissions from around 400 incinerators, gasification and pyrolysis, or “advanced recycling,” facilities are not required to be reported to the Toxics Release Inventory.
