Benefits of Incineration as a Form of Waste Management Incineration is the process of waste management which involves the combustion of waste. Incineration transforms the waste into heat, ash and flue gas. The procedure has become among the most utilized waste disposal mechanisms and has replaced waste disposal through landfills. The heat generated by incineration can be harnessed to create power by use of WtE-Waste-to-energy technologies. This process has become prevalent in most municipal waste management. There are many advantages which may be gotten out of incineration as a form of waste management compared to other waste management methods. Less Expensive Due to its less emission of gases, incineration plants can be situated near or in cities. In this case therefore, the cost of having to transport the waste for many miles outside the city is eliminated. Waste control through landfills demands that the waste be transported to these sites and most of them are usually situated far off from the town which makes it rather pricey. However incineration cuts on such transportation costs and the money saved can be used to run other important projects.

Incineration can burn roughly 90 percent of the waste generated in a given area. This makes incineration the most reliable and harmless form of waste management. Other waste management forms such as landfills facilitate only the decomposition of organic waste while it keeps nonorganic waste piling up. Occupies Less Space Incineration plants occupy a tiny space. Incineration reduces the volume of initial waste to almost 10%. Incineration is particularly significant in urban cities in which there is scarcity of land. Instead of landfills where people have to look for new zones each time one is complete, incineration websites are built only ones and can be used over and over again. Generation of Electricity The heat produced during the incineration of waste can be harnessed through the use of waste-to-energy technologies to produce electricity. This energy can be used to accommodate to energy demands of the people living nearby. The energy produced is very clean and can be used to replace or reduce the use of fossil fuels thus saving on the emission of harmful gases to the environment. Not Affected by Weather Conditions Incinerators don’t have some positive weather conditions. They are made in a way they are operated in whatever climate conditions that may prevail instead of landfills which could be affected throughout the rainy season as the waste transportation vehicles might get stuck. No Pollution The gases generated through incineration are not toxic to the environment. Also incineration does not contaminate groundwater as landfills do. It also avoids environmental hazards that can result from other waste management methods such as deep sea dumping of waste that may destroy aqua life. Produces Odor Free Residue The bottom ash residue produced following incineration has been Was non-hazardous and is odor free. The residue can be recycled and Used as a construction aggregate.
