Low-Cost Incinerator for Urban Waste

Open burning and incomplete combustion of waste can result in toxic releases both to air and groundwater, contributing to environmental damage and causing serious implications for the health of people and livestock.

To tackle waste disposal problems successfully, it is important that those responsible for waste management have at their disposal appropriate waste management strategies and technologies together with guidance on how and when to use them. It is with this in mind that this manual has been developed.

Controlled incineration is an option to consider for waste management. It does have a polluting effect and high emissions (especially the low-cost incinerator), but less so than open burning. These construction manuals, technical drawings and specific project experiences provide all the necessary information to enable the LCI to be built and operated by individuals, NGOs and local authorities.
