Lebanese engineer Ziad Abi Chaker visited Odense to find out how the plant is operated and whether a similar facility, which is being hailed by a number of politicians as the most desirable solution for Lebanon's waste problem, is likely to yield the same results in the Lebanese capital.His findings were chronicled in a documentary titled "An incinerator for Beirut?" which was launched earlier Thursday at Beirut's Empire Sofil cinema.Environmental experts interviewed in the short film recounted how Denmark, similarly to Lebanon, also faced long-standing difficulties in finding a suitable solution to the management of its waste. However, Hansen said he did not have knowledge of any facility having implemented thermal disintegration, a modern technique the Beirut Municipality is calling for in Beirut.Pointing at a wide blue area covering the Beirut map, Lakkis concluded that the neighborhoods of Ashrafieh and Burj Hammoud would be the most exposed to the fumes coming from the incinerator.
