  1. Comparative analysis of health risk assessments for municipal waste combustors.

    Article - En anglais

    This article presents the results of a comparative analysis of a total of 21 risk assessments, focusing on seven of the most comprehensive methodologies.

    The analysis concentrates on stack emissions of noncriteria pollutants and is comparative rather than critical in nature.

    The results indicate that carcinogenic risks are more significant than chronic non-carcinogenic risks.

    In most instances polychlorodibenzodioxins, polychlorodibenzofurans, and cadmium contribute more significantly to the total carcinogenic risk from MWC stack emissions than other contaminants.
