<p>Public Health England (PHE) has reviewed the evidence on the effects of waste incinerators on human health. The PHE publication can be viewed at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/municipal-waste-incinerator-emissions-to-air-impact-on-health" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/municipal-waste-incinerator-emissions-to-air-impact-on-health</a></p><p> </p><p>PHE does not have any current plans to estimate the levels and assessment of the effects on public health of nitrogen oxides emitted during incineration of municipal waste. PHE’s position is that well run and regulated modern municipal waste incinerators (MWIs) are not a significant risk to public health. This view is based on detailed assessments of the effects of air pollutants on health and on the fact that modern MWIs make a small contribution to local concentrations of air pollutants.</p><p> </p><p>PHE will review its advice in light of new substantial research on the health effects of incinerators published in peer reviewed journals. To date, PHE is not aware of any evidence that requires a change in its position statement.</p>
