Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This is a short overview on the world-wide problem of waste, the relevant legislation and management, particularly regarding waste hierarchy, waste classification, and life cycle assessment of wastes combined with environmental risk assessment as a basis for decisions on waste re-use and utilization. Waste utilization on soil will create an innovative link between waste hierarchy, abandoned land, and deteriorated soil reclamation and remediation.
