This new volume offers effective solutions to the mismanagement of waste, particularly in developing countries, by providing an understanding of different types of wastes, their generation, and use of advanced technologies for waste management, and by focusing on integrating the technical and regulatory complexities of waste management. It provides a comprehensive overview of the characterization, issues, and regulatory development of waste management for sustainable solutions and prevention techniques. Covering the various types of pollution, including pollution from plastics, industrial activities, metals, livestock, healthcare, food loss and waste, etc., the book explores new techniques for thermal and radioactive waste management and includes such methods as vermicomposting and composting for organic waste management and profitable use. The volume also looks at the role of modern technologies and legislation measures to manage biosolid waste. Numerous data sets obtained from various surveys are included, and special categories of waste that may not fit precisely into either RCRA Subtitle D (solid wastes) or Subtitle C (hazardous wastes) are discussed as well.
