Given the potential risks posed by the ineffective management of hazardous wastes to public health and the environment, and an increasing desire to adopt more circular approaches, there has been a growing focus on how best to effectively manage and recover value from the wastes. This Special Issue focuses on novel and emerging processes and technologies for the effective management of hazardous waste. The case studies cover a range of approaches including policy, technology and process redesign as a means of reducing the risks and recovering value.
