Excerpt
Excerpt: In addition to the waste generated by cigarette consumers, the tobacco manufacturing process itself produces liquid and solid wastes. Novotny and Zhaos research showed that in 1995 worldwide tobacco manufacturing produced 2.26 billion kilograms of solid waste and 209 million kilograms of chemical waste. Ironically, the trend toward ?healthier? low-nicotine cigarettes spawns nicotine as a waste product. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) includes nicotine on its Toxics Release Inventory, a list of hazardous chemicals that require special disposal. ?The tobacco industry is moving manufacturing processes to developing countries, and this has environmental consequences,? says Novotny, who explains that developing nations generally lack environmental watchdogs such as the EPA.
