International Journal of Integrated Waste Management, Science and Technology

Waste Management is devoted to the presentation and discussion of information on solid waste generation, characterization, minimization, collection, separation, treatment, and disposal, as well as manuscripts that address waste management policy, education, and economic and environmental assessments. The journal addresses various types of solid wastes including municipal (e.g., residential, institutional, and commercial), agricultural, and special (e.g., hazardous household, hazardous and non-hazardous industrial, construction and demolition, sewage sludge, healthcare and medical) wastes. Mining, metallurgical and radioactive wastes are not in the scope of the journal.

The journal welcomes both fundamental and applied research that can be related to problems of interest to solid waste researchers, practitioners and/or policy makers. Well documented case studies will be considered but they must describe results that can be applied beyond the specific location of the case study. Manuscripts that focus on the use of a waste material in a new product are often more suitable for a journal that focuses on the material properties of the product. In considering whether a manuscript is suitable for publication in Waste Management, consider whether the information is of potential use to solid waste researchers, practitioners and/or policymakers.

The following are some of the major areas in which papers are solicited:

Generation and characterization

Minimization

Recycling and reuse

Storage, collection, transport, and transfer

Treatment (mechanical, biological, chemical, thermal, other)

Landfill disposal

Environmental assessments (including LCA and S-LCA)

Economic analysis (including LCC)

Policy and regulations

Planning

New and emerging issues and technologies



Waste Management will not be accepting proposals for new Special Issues (SI) anymore. The new Special Issue topics and contents will be arranged and announced by the editorial team of WM. Interested authors are welcome to contribute articles.
