Industrial revolution has resulted in a grave problem of generation of hazardous waste in large quantities. Outdated technology, knowledge gap, weak enforcing, corruption and waste trafficking are a few of the barriers for effective hazardous waste management systems in many nations. The size and type of industries vary from country to country and so do the volume and qualities of waste.
