4) Grupo ambientalista critica metodo de incineracion de desechos.
Cuando los gobiernos el mundo se preparan para adoptar formalmente y firmar
un tratado global para eliminar los "contaminantes organicos persistentes"
("POPs" sus siglas en ingles) del ambiemte, una alianza internacional de
organizaciones no gubernamentales declararon hoy la guerra contra toda forma
de incineracion de desechos como una parte del problema de los POPs y
ciertamente ningun tipo de solucion para eso.

1) Corporaciones de la India toman medidas eco-amigables: Estudio.

NEW DELHI, Jun 19, 2001 (AsiaPulse via COMTEX) -- Business houses in India
are now frequently availing of environmental services to help identify and
incorporate conservation measures within their core commercial activities, a
study has said.

"There is an increasing trend among major Indian corporates to make
environmental component an important part in the conduct of their business,"
a study by Tata Energy Research Institute (TERI) has said.

Programmes like Eco-rating and Energy audit were already in place and being
successfully implemented, the study said adding that a Corporate Network on
environment had brought together leading business houses to identify key
problem areas in the field of industrial sustainability and develop
strategies to address them.

Referring to the Eco-rating of all power plants being undertaken by TERI,
the study said the process was seen as the 'green' equivalent of a credit
rating system.

Eco-rating encompases all types of performers in its ambit, from the poor to
the very best, and could be used as the first step towards ISO 14001
certification and later even to monitor the certified units' performance
over time.

Corporates are benchmarked in terms of parameters related to pollution,
environmental impact, intensity of resource utilisation, work environment,
preparation of contingency management systems and comprehensive environment
management systems.


2) Kenya tomara medidas rudas contra los que contaminen el ambiente.

NAIROBI, Jun 19, 2001 (Xinhua via COMTEX) -- The Kenyan government has
warned all local business operators that they will risk stern actions if
they continue abusing existing environment laws.

Kenyan Trade and Industry Minister Nicholas Biwott was quoted by Tuesday's
East African Standard newspaper as saying that the government wanted high
environmental standards maintained.

He said that his ministry will no longer accept any business that abuses
environmental legislation.

"Much as we want to save and create as many jobs as possible for our people,
we can not compromise on environmental issues," he said.

He called on all business operators to commit themselves to the concept of c
leaner production, saying that emerging challengers such as commitments to
international treaties require industry to transform production and
corporate behavior.

Exhibition Hall. As the most influencing international environmental
protection exhibition in China's Huanan region, this exhibition will offer
great commercial opportunities for implementing the Guangdong Province Clear
Water Project and Blue Sky Engineering Project. During the same term,
European Commission decided to hold a high-class "Environmental Protective
Tech Trade Partners Talks". And it is reported there were over 400
exhibiting manufacturers from HK and Taiwan and overseas attained the past
three exhibitions.

4) Grupo ambientalista critica metodo de incineracion de desechos.

CEBU CITY, Jun 19, 2001 (AsiaPulse via COMTEX) -- As governments around the
world prepare to formally adopt and sign a global treaty to eliminate
persistent organic pollutants (POPs) from the environment, an international
alliance of non-governmental organizations today declared war against all
forms of waste incineration as part of the POP's problem and certainly not
any kind of solution to it.

The treaty aims to eliminate all POPs and lists twelve substances for
priority action. The dirty dozen include intentionally produced chemicals
such as pesticides and PCBs, as well as by-products such as furans and the
cancer-causing dioxins.

These dioxin and furan compounds are routinely released as unwanted
by-products of industries that use chlorine and from waste incinerators.

The Global Anti-Incinerator Alliance (GAIA) warned governments against
continuing to build incinerators of all kinds and against rushing to dispose
of POPs by burning or burying their stockpiles of POPs wastes, but to adopt
appropriate and safer alternative destruction technologies instead.

We cannot solve a disaster with yet another disaster, said Von Hernandez,
GAIA Southern coordinator from the Philippines. Rather than solving the POPs
problem, incineration perpetuates it, and traps developing countries and
countries with transitional economies, into very expensive, obsolete and
unsustainable waste management regimes.

Anti-incineration activists around the world find new justification in the
new obligations of the Stockholm Convention which calls for POPs wastes to
be destroyed or irreversibly transformed so they no longer possess the
characteristics of POPs.

And, the Convention calls incineration, including so called state-of-the-art
forms of burning wastes have been identified as a major source of the most
dangerous POP dioxin.

Furthermore, the Convention calls for the substitution of alternatives for
any processes, including incineration, which produce dioxins.

GAIA calls on proven zero waste policies such as minimizing packaging,
composting and recycling for dealing with non- hazardous solid wastes, and
the use of proven, existent non-combustion alternative destruction
technologies that will chemically or biologically destroy POPs and other
wastes without producing new POPs compounds in the process.

The alliance praised recent initiatives that point the way to an
incinerator-free world: Recently, the Global Environment Facility (GEF)
approved an NGO conceived pilot project to set up environmentally safe
non-incineration technologies to destroy stockpiles of persistent organic
pollutants (POPs) in the Philippines and Slovakia.

In a similar development, Denmark, a long-time promoter of the use of cement
kilns to dispose of pesticides waste in developing countries, has announced
that the Danish Environmental Protection Agency, due to environmental and
social concerns, will no longer be funding aid projects that utilize cement
kilns for hazardous waste disposal, and will be looking to the newer
non-combustion technologies for future on-site disposal projects.

The country of Slovakia has recently banned the use of PVC plastic. PVC
plastic when burned openly or incinerators will produce dioxins and furans.
