Hazardous Waste Recycling Will Have A Significant Contribution to Mitigate Environmental Risks in Developing Nations

Hazardous waste  is  generated from  various  industries  such  as  those  involving  chemicals,  healthcare,  construction,  nuclear power generation, agriculture, textile, and so on. Such hazardous waste stream comprises of valuable resources that can be potentially recycled, recovered and reused. Predominantly, hazardous waste is being managed by employing technologies such as incineration, autoclaving, and landfill disposal in which such valuable resources are lost during the treatment and disposal techniques.

The importance of hazardous waste recycling technologies is growing steadily in developing countries as it prevents the accumulation of such hazardous waste in landfills which causes severe environmental impacts and promotes the reuse and recovery of valuable materials present in the waste streams.
