About the product

The fundamental aims of the Basel Convention are the reduction of the transboundary movements of hazardous wastes and environmentally sound management of such wastes. This document focuses on waste incineration, a thermal treatment process in which hazardous wastes are converted into gases. It will be a useful resource for countries that are building their capacity to manage waste in an environmentally sound and efficient way.
