#India has a target of raising the non-fossil fuel based energy capacity to 500 GW by 2030. Policies & financial institutions that support #Waste To #Energy #incinerators need to remember that #plastic is #fossilfuels. Burning (plastic) waste as a source of energy not only slows down our #sustainableenergy aspirations, it actively worsens our emission target contributions. And of course, the plastic production will continue unabated, as now, it can all just be burnt. We lose on all fronts.
