Re: [GreenYes] amount of PVC incinerated per year?
Are you looking just at packaging PVC, or other applications. You might 
calculate incineration of PVC packaging by taking the total PVC resin sales 
in a given year (APC reports were done by Beck & Associates for a number of 
years), then multiplying that figure by the percent of US MSW that is 
incinerated (I think EPA has it at about 17% now - the number is available 
for all years going back to 1960). Recycling of PVC is negligible.
