There's been a big debate around here (Gloucestershire) about the viability of a waste incinerator. I heard some of it on Radio 4 a month or so back. It would seem that they will be burning plastics (if they get the go ahead) but I don't know/can't remember what they do about the nasty chemicals. I would have thought that the contribution made by nappies would be negligible in comparison. It would seem that the incinerator is only marginally green by the time you factor in transport and the energy costs of producing plastic bottles. You only get back about 20% of the energy used to make a plastic bottle by burning it.
Perhaps you could scrape the poo off the nappy, dry it and use it as fuel?
