C E 476 Solid and Hazardous Wastes (3)

Solid waste management continues to be a major area of concern for the Environmental Engineering profession. Based on the principle of the conservation of mass, we know that all of our wastes must be deposited in either the air, water or land environments. With improvements in air and water pollution control technologies, resulting in solid residuals, an increasing waste load is being placed on the land. Environmental impacts are being addressed as a future need.
