Industrial Waste

Industrial waste is produced during manufacturing processes at places such as factories, mills, mining operations, or construction sites. Common examples of industrial waste are chemical solvents, paints, sand paper, paper products, metals, and radioactive waste.

Industrial waste, if not managed or handled correctly, can cause serious health and environmental problems because it contains volatile organic compounds (VOC), dioxins, acids, and heavy metals, which may evaporate suddenly when coming into contact with air, resulting in harmful emissions.
