dc.description.abstractHazardous, wastes are common, generated in large volumes, and pres- <br /><br />ent modes of management are not sufficient. Hazardous wastes are generated by <br /><br />driving a vehicle and the manufacture of cosmetics, food, and vehicles, and so <br /><br />forth. Seven major federal regulations control, limit, and manage hazardous wastes. <br /><br />Public perceptions of the issues regarding hazardous substances management are <br /><br />clouded due to the absence of standards for determining acceptable risks, and <br /><br />because it is difficult to distinguish between toxic and hazardous materials. Current <br /><br />technologies used to manage hazardous wastes include incineration, use as fuel, <br /><br />solidification and stabilization, solvent and metal recovery, wastewater treatment, <br /><br />disposal in landfills, land treatment, underground injection, and waste minimi- <br /><br />zation and recycling. Effective public policy and practice only will evolve when <br /><br />there is a better understanding of the problems, development of acceptable public <br /><br />health risk standards and streamlined processes for approval of new facilities, and <br /><br />appropriate incentives for reducing the annual volume of hazardous wastes.
