BANGKOK, PRAGUE; 09 February 2022 | ARNIKA, EARTH
An international team of experts are investigating the industrial hot spots in Khok Sa-ad sub district, Kalasin province. The area is infamous for Thailand’s largest e-waste dump, where scrap from all over the world was formerly collected. The toxic pollution is even enhanced by local dubious dismantling and recycling sites affecting its wider vicinity, including poor local communities. Environmentalists from Arnika, EARTH, and the local administrative organisation are collecting samples for analysis of toxic chemicals.
