Dioxin emissions to fall by over 70%, says HMIP report

Atmospheric emissions of dioxins are set to fall by more than two-thirds by 1997 because of incoming controls on incinerators, according to a report commissioned by HM Inspectorate of Pollution (HMIP).1 But releases from major sources such as steel works are not expected to drop significantly, and further work is needed to assess potentially important sources such as releases to water and land, contaminated chemical products and accidental fires.
