|This paper summarized the harmful characteristics of dioxin to human health, the emission level of dioxin from Municipal solid waste incineration(MSWI), the concentration of dioxin in the air and soil, the exposure routes, dose and health impact of dioxin in the surrounding environment in China. The existing studies show that the concentration of dioxin emitted from MSWI in China is within a reasonable range. The exposure level of dioxin in the people around the waste incineration plant is generally lower than the allowable standard recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO). However, some studies have found that the concentration of dioxin in the surrounding environment were increased due to the incineration of garbage. It is suggested that more attention should be paid to the effects of long term and low dose exposure of dioxins from MSWI on human health.
