Burning Garbage instead of Coal

A provincial draft legislation in Canada could lead to cement and steel companies using garbage instead of coal to power their plants, in hopes to lower their greenhouse gas emissions. Environmentalists are concerned because the facilities were not designed to deal with the emissions and challenges associated with garbage burning. However, a Ministry of Environment spokesperson assured that only nonrecyclable, nonhazardous residual wastes would be considered to be used as an alternative to coal. Burning garbage could lead to reduced costs, as well as, reduced emissions for cement facilities.
