Tourism Waste Challenges & Incineration Solutions

Tourism waste piled up on beach with ocean in background

The tourism industry is set to reopen to the global economy and as more travel options become available to tourists, we see the potential for a boom in holidays both at home and abroad. Inciner8 can assist with sustainable tourism by focusing on waste management in the worlds most popular tourism spots.

Tourism waste statistics*(BEMP-6-FINAL.pdf (europa.eu)) show that in some destinations, tourists produce up to twice as much waste as local residents. This can put a strain on the waste management infrastructure and is an issue that the tourism industry will be increasingly monitoring as COVID restrictions begin to ease across the globe and tourism inevitably increases.

Tourism waste has the potential to easily overload waste management systems in more rural or low population areas. It is not just small low populated areas that are of concern, poorly designed waste management programmes can also affect cities that cope with a mass of tourists, which in some cases can amount to up to 10 times more waste than from the native population.

Long term strategies are needed to reduce the amount of waste produced in the tourism industry and Inciner8 can compliment this with an offering of incineration products that are needed by smaller, less populated islands as well as global hotels in larger tourism spots. During consultation, Inciner8 gains an understanding of the individual needs of their clients and then supplies them with a solution that will fulfil their requirements fully.

Is an incinerator suitable for hotel/resort waste?

A typical 100-bed hotel generates more than 375kg of waste per day. The waste generated from hotels and resorts is usually considered as MSW (Municipal Solid Waste), which comprises typically of food waste, wood, plastics, cardboard, and paper. All of which are suitable to incinerate.

The Inciner8 range of multi-purpose incinerators cater for any size of hotel operation. For large scale island resorts through to smaller independent hotels, there are waste solutions to fit a range of budgets and waste volumes. 

From a sustainable tourism and effective waste management perspective, incineration is seen as the most efficient and safe way to destroy waste in tourism hot spots.
