We aimed at examining the relation between exposure to the emissions from a municipal solid waste incinerator and risk of birth defects in a northern Italy community, using Geographical Information System (GIS) data to estimate exposure and a population-based case-control study design.

In the present study, we studied the extent to which the risk for congenital anomalies varied with maternal exposure to emissions from a modern municipal waste incinerator, by conducting a population-based case-control investigation near a plant with intermittent operation during the study period, and by using a GIS-based approach for exposure assessment and for geographical localization of cases and controls.

A municipal solid waste incinerator with a capacity of 70.000 tons/year is located in the city of Reggio Emilia, Emilia-Romagna region (extension 232 km 2 , population approximately 150,000).

The incinerator consists of two combustion lines that started operating in 1968, and has been equipped since 1992 with a dry scrubbing of flue based on sodium bicarbonate for acidic pollutants gas and since 1994 by an activated carbon device for dioxins, furans and mercury adsorption.
