Port of Antwerp can't incinerate cocaine fast enough

In 2021 nearly 90 tonnes of cocaine was seized at the port of Antwerp, a new record. It will likely be broken again this year as customs expects that the 100-tonne mark will be reached. Street value is at least €5 billion. These record amounts of cocaine are causing a security problem: incinerators can't process the seized cocaine, so the stockpile keeps growing.

"We are urgently looking for additional incineration capacity" a spokesperson said. "Burning cocaine releases substances that are very harmful to the filters of the incinerator. At most, we can process 1,000 to 1,500 kg per session." The mountain of cocaine is now so big officials fear criminals will raid the customs warehouses.
