Journal of Waste Recycling

About Journal of Waste Recycling

Journal of Waste Recycling is an international open access peer reviewed publication that focuses on the optimum utilization of the natural resources with social responsibility, by emphasizing on recycling and waste management. The journal aims at unearthing the recent innovations and developments in this field with a view to check the global warming.

The journal covers several key aspects this field by including research on categories including Waste management, raw materials, Sanitary engineering, Resource efficiency, human biodegradable waste, Incineration, hazardous waste materials, biological medical waste, resource recovery, Biological reprocessing and Co-processing.

The journal encourages advancements in the areas mentioned above in the form of research articles, reviews, commentaries, case studies and letters to the editors. The editorial manager system facilitates a user friendly article submission, review and publication. Manuscripts that are thoroughly peer reviewed would ensure the best standards in the industry.

Biomass and Biological Waste Treatment

The treatment of the biomass and biological waste include various techniques. It is either converted to other useful resources or energy or disposed.

Biomass is biological material derived from living, or recently living organisms. In the context of biomass for energy this is often used to mean plant based material, but biomass can equally apply to both animal and vegetable derived material.

Chemical Waste Management

The chemical laboratory workers create waste which has to be handled according to the instructions. The chemical wastes are collected separately and treated accordingly. Some of the chemicals are recycled whereas others are disposed.

Chemical waste is defined by the United States Environmental Protection Agency and by the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control. Definitions, management practices and compliance are outlined in 40 Code of Federal Regulations and the Delaware Rules Governing Hazardous Waste.

E-waste

Electronic waste (e-waste) is the discarded electrical or electronic devices. Used electronics which are destined for reuse, resale, salvage, recycling or disposal are also considered as e-waste. The need for e-waste management has been increasing from the past decade.

E-waste is any refuse created by discarded electronic devices and components as well as substances involved in their manufacture or use. The disposal of electronics is a growing problem because electronic equipment frequently contains hazardous substances.

Fly Ash

Fly ash is the fine particles that are resultant of coal combustion and other waste materials that are driven out of the boiler with the flue gases. The fine particles that are deposited at the bottom is called bottom ash.

Fly ash, also known as "pulverised fuel ash" in the United Kingdom, is one of the residues generated by coal combustion, and is composed of the fine particles that are driven out of the boiler with the flue gases.

Nuclear waste

The waste that is remained after the use of nuclear chemicals in the reactors. They are assemblies of metal rods, ceramic pellets, which are similar to the fuel loaded initially. They reacquire special techniques for their management and disposal.

Nuclear waste is the material that nuclear fuel becomes after it is used in a reactor. It looks exactly like the fuel that was loaded into the reactor assemblies of metal rods enclosing stacked-up ceramic pellets. But since nuclear reactions have occurred, the contents are't quite the same.

Recyclable Waste

Recycling is the method used to convert the waste materials into products which can be reused. The common waste materials which have the potential to be reused can be recycled as raw materials, can reduce energy consumption, reduce pollution, reduce further pollution of water and landfills; reducing the need for waste disposal.

Recycling is processing used materials (waste) into new, useful products. This is done to reduce the use of raw materials that would have been used.

Science and Technology in Waste Treatment

All the strategies and advanced techniques use in collection, treatment, recycling, and disposal of waste are discussed under this category.

Tertiary treatment is a term applied to polishing methods used following a traditional sewage treatment sequence. Tertiary treatment is being increasingly applied in industrialized countries and most common technologies are micro filtration or synthetic membranes.

Solid Waste Management

Solid waste management is the collection, treatment and disposal of solid materials that are discarded by purpose or no longer useful. Improper disposal of solid waste result in unsanitary conditions which lead to pollution and spreads various infections and diseases.

Solid waste management is one of the major challenges faced by many countries around the globe. Inadequate collection, recycling or treatment and uncontrolled disposal of waste in dumps can lead to severe hazards, such as health risks and environmental pollution.

Special Waste

Special wastes are medical waste, pollution control waste or industrial wastes which on exposure to living mechanisms cause harmful effects. Also termed as hazardous waste.

Special wastes can be any potentially infectious medical waste (PIMW), hazardous waste, pollution control waste or industrial process waste.The regulations which govern the proper generation, hauling and manifesting of these wastes can be found in 35 Ill. Adm. Code Subtitle G: Waste Disposal.

Waste Management

Waste management is the collection, removal, processing and disposal of waste (waste of humans and organisms including industrial waste)

Waste management is a set of activities that include the following: collection, transport, treatment and disposal of waste; control, monitoring and regulation of the production, collection, transport, treatment and disposal of waste

Waste Resources Management

The waste resource management includes a hierarchial processes which result in various stages related to waste after its collection. It includes avoiding waste, reducing waste, reusing (recycling) waste, recovering waste, waste treatment and waste disposal.

Waste management is the precise name for the collection, transportation, disposal or recycling and monitoring of waste. This term is assigned to the material, waste material that is produced through human being activity.

Waste Water

Wastewater is the adversely affected quality of water by anthropogenic influence. It can originate from a combination of domestic, industrial, commercial or agricultural activities, surface runoff or storm water, and from sewer inflow or infiltration.

Wastewater, also written as waste water, is any water that has been adversely affected in quality by anthropogenic influence.

Zero Waste

Zero waste is a strategy of designing a resource so that it can be reused.

Zero Waste is a philosophy that encourages the redesign of resource life cycles so that all products are reused. No trash is sent to landfills and incinerators. The process recommended is one similar to the way that resources are reused in nature.
