Nowadays, sugar*free food is very popular because of its low calorie value. So food industries make use of various artificial sweeteners of low calorie as an alternative to high calorie sugars and they provide low glycemic response. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved artificial sweeteners such as saccharin, acesulfame-K, sucralose, aspartame, etc. as per acceptable daily intake value (ADI) value, but these artificial sweeteners that breakdown products during metabolism in turn are known to have health and metabolic effects.

Waste management is one of the vital environmental issues since last few decades. It has been noted that the generation of waste increases with increasing population, industrialization and urbanization etc. The waste management strategy includes both non-hazardous and hazardous waste management. Non-hazardous waste does not cause potential threat to environment but instead hazardous waste is the waste that poses substantial or potential threats to public health and the environment. Rapidly growing industrial sector has contributed to the generation of large quantity of hazardous waste material. Therefore, to reduce environmental hazard, proper attention is required during storage, segregation, transportation and disposal of hazardous waste, because it cannot be disposed as off in the environment. This study explains about hazardous wastes, types and management.
