About the book
Among the different types of waste material, the management of hazardous waste is the most challenging one as it contains toxic and refractory compounds. Upon processing this waste, there is a chance of the formation of highly toxic secondary daughter molecules. The direct disposal of hazardous waste into our surroundings leads to soil and groundwater pollution. Remediation of hazardous waste polluted sites is a challenging task and it takes time and cost. In some cases, it is highly impossible to bring back the ecosystem into its original shape.
This book looks to discuss the recent development in various pretreatment methods before its disposal to enhance its degradation and stabilization. It also aims to cover trends in the usage of anaerobic digestion, pyrolysis, and incineration in managing hazardous waste. The purpose of this book is to gather information about a variety of technologies employed for hazardous waste treatment, recycle, management, safe disposal, and measuring the environmental risk.
