Waste Management is an international journal devoted to the presentation and discussion of information on the generation, prevention, characterisation, monitoring, long term behaviour, treatment, handling, reuse and ultimate residual disposition of hazardous, radioactive, industrial and municipal solid wastes. Waste Management is designed for scientists, engineers, and managers, regardless of their discipline, who are involved in scientific, technical and engineering problems related to policy making and compliance with legislation. The environmental effects of hazardous, radioactive, industrial and municipal solid wastes in all their physical states are addressed. The objective is to examine the management of these wastes in all forms, thus fostering the opportunity for cross-fertilisation rather than artificial separation into a series of non-exclusive subsets established by regulation and/or law: e.g. the air problem, soil contamination, groundwater impact, mixed waste, superfund wastes, reactor decommissioning wastes. Emphasis is on integrated technical information. The technical and regulatory worlds are so tightly entwined today that purely technical information without knowledge of how legal, social, and regulatory policies and situations impact its application is of limited management value. To further support the manager, we will also report on both specialised and general hardware and software that will assist in the handling of the pressures of data and information available, including modelling approaches to assist the decision making process. Consequently, Waste Management will strive to present a mix of subject matter that will best serve to help the reader understand the entire problem. The aim is for Waste Management to be the forum for managers, charged with finding solutions to hazardous, radioactive, industrial and municipal solid waste problems, to look for information. The following are some of the major areas in which Papers, Notes, and Discussions are solicited: pollution prevention - waste minimisation in all its forms chemical, physical, and biological treatment characterisation, modelling and long term behaviour of wastes bioremediation incineration stack gas treatment methods sludge management, including biological, chemical and mixed vitrification solidification-stabilisation treatment of spent nuclear fuels radioactive wastes landfill and radioactive waste repository construction and design facility decommissioning mixed wastes, including industrial and mixed landfill remediation, NORM deep-well disposal and the other methods used to prevent, treat, destroy, or detoxify industrial wastes environmental and technical aspects of the reuse of industrial and municipal solid wastes in construction information on social and political activities, including government policy direction changes, new major legislation, developments in testing and other similar activities that impact the management of industrial and municipal solid wastes. Papers, Notes, and Discussions may be related to the use and application in a specific industry or basic to the process methods or problems.
