DescriptionThis is the second phase of the global programme to demonstrate and promote alternative non-combustion technologies for use in the destruction of obsolete Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) stockpiles. The Program will successfully use such technologies to destroy significant obsolete POPs stockpiles in countries with developing economies and economies in transition, and it will thereby help remove barriers to the further adoption and effective implementation of available non-combustion technologies and meet the Stockholm Convention requirement to ensure the use of Best Available Techniques (BAT) and ensure Best Environmental Practices (BEP). This second installment is characterised by a developing-country setting with no direct competition from incineration (export to Europe is the baseline option), and a strong country commitment to the sound management and disposal of PCBs.
