Incineration of hazardous waste is considered having an important impact on health and environment. It is however, from aneconomical point of view, often the only feasible treatment option.

Furthermore, the share of hazardous waste incineration in total pollutant emissions of industrialized regions and hence the environmental impacts, are very low (
