Global Alliance For Incinerator Alternatives

Global Alliance For Incinerator Alternatives:

The Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives (GAIA) Asia Pacific has called on the ASEAN to take decisive action in response to plastic pollution.

  • Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives (GAIA) is a worldwide alliance of more than 1,000 grassroots groups, non-governmental organizations and individuals.
  • It aims to power a transition away from our current linear and extractive economy and towards a circular system that supports people’s right to a safe and healthy environment.
  • It envisions a just, zero-waste world built on respect for ecological limits and community rights, where people are free from the burden of toxic pollution and resources are sustainably conserved, not burned or dumped.
  • This entails fighting pollution and building regenerative solutions in cities through local campaigns, shifts in policy and finance, research and communication initiatives, and movement building.
  • They work on four primary points of intervention: incineration, zero waste, plastic, and climate.
  • Incineration is the process of burning hazardous materials at temperatures high enough to destroy contaminants.
  • Incineration is conducted in an “incinerator,” which is a type of furnace designed for burning hazardous materials in a combustion chamber.
  • Many different types of hazardous materials can be treated by incineration, including soil, sludge, liquids and gases.
