Incineration and secure disposal
While liquid wastes, clinical wastes, flammable wastes and secure waste are not suitable for landfill, incineration is a safer option that has some environmental benefits but is not the most eco-friendly solution.
Not only does incinerating hazardous waste decrease its solid mass by up to 80% so it takes up less physical space, but also the energy released from incineration can be reused. Energy created during the waste incineration process is converted into electricity and heat. Although incineration is still a better solution to landfill, disposing of some waste streams with incineration does raise air pollution and carbon impact concerns.
Again, RJS Waste Management only uses the most strictly regulated UK incineration plants for hazardous waste disposal. Our specialist sites also ensure the highest temperatures are used to detoxify hazardous waste.
