Abstract

In 1978, the NATO/CCMS Phase II Pilot Study on Disposal of Hazardous Waste started a project to develop information on the state-of-the-art of chemical, physical and biological (C/P/B) treatment processes as applied to hazardous wastes. This effort was directed at making member countries and waste generators aware of the alternatives to land disposal and incineration for management of industrial wastes.
