If You Have to Choose
Incineration is a common process of physical waste removal but it stops there. Emissions during the combustion process, with carbon dioxide gases as the predominant, do not get arrested. A piece of petroleum based plastic going up in flames, releases trapped carbon dioxide from prehistoric era into our modern atmosphere of today. This is the main culprit for global warming and is still at large. Compare that to a biobase alternative, where its carbon content, harnessed from our current period, gets released back into that same stretch of time after combustion. There is no additional tax nor burden on the existing carbon dioxide levels of present day. This is the basic principle of carbon neutrality. To put it into simple perspective; which one do you reckon is eco friendlier? Incinerating a stack of plastic plates or a heap of leaves?
