Chemicals and paint residues are examples of industrial wastes

How to dispose of industrial waste?

The major generators of industrial solid wastes are the thermal power plants producing coal ash, the integrated Iron and Steel mills producing blast furnace slag and steel melting slag; non-ferrous industries like aluminium, zinc and copper producing red mud and tailings, sugar industries generating press mud, pulp and paper industries producing lime and fertilizer and allied industries producing gypsum. Four methods for disposal of industrial wastes are

  • Segregation: Segregate hazardous waste from compostable organic waste, non-hazardous solid waste, recyclable materials and other regulated material.
  • Landfill: One of the most popularly used methods of waste disposal. This process buries the waste in the land, but there is more to it. There is also a method that eliminates rubbish’s odour and dangers before placing them on the ground.
  • Composting: This process turns waste into organic compounds, which you can use to feed plants.
  • Recycling. This method is one of the effects of the four methods. This process aims to make unwanted items turn into useful ones.
