We are delighted to announce a themed issue dedicated to Waste and Recycling, which will be published in 2015 in Environmental Science: Processes & Impacts.
Guest editor Hans Peter Arp, from the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute, is encouraging submissions for a bold, special issue that will address a wide range of concerns related to how current changes in waste handling and management are impacting the environment at the global and local level.
Papers are solicited for all types of waste, waste management, recycling practices and pollution. The most important requirement is that the studies contribute to our understanding of the complex relationship between waste handling processes and resulting environmental impacts. Case studies from various international regions are particularly encouraged, to shed white light on the issues facing different societies, from zero waste municipalities to e-waste pollution havens.
Submission Deadline: 1st May 2015
We hope this special issue will be a trove of useful information for developing effective waste collection, sorting, transporting, landfilling, incineration and recycling strategies for a cleaner environment.
We hope to receive a manuscript from you or your group soon!
