What is Incineration?

Incineration, or the burning of waste to produce energy, has also been an attractive waste processing approach for many communities around the country. Properly operated incineration projects can provide energy in the form of electricity or processed steam, while reducing the volume of waste that must be landfilled by a significant fraction.
