1. Aim and discussion topics

Keywords: fractioning of wastes, dumping sites, 
hazard potential for subsequent generations, recycling, conditioing 
to inert them, combustion plants

The increasing quantity and the hazards of human wastes evolved to a
very serious environmental problem. They can impair the general well-
being of man, animals, vegetation, their basis of existence or their 
natural environment. 

Tthis topic needs an integrated approch by environmentalists,
biologists, 
ecologists, chemists, technicians and lawyers.

This mailing list is proposed to provide a forum for scientific 
discussion on the one hand by people who are distressed by the 
negative effects which their wastes can take on our natural 
environment (soil, water, air and the seas) and on the other hand by 
people involved in collecting, fractioning, conditioning, recycling 
or dumping wastes.

I've chosen the label waste instead of a more specific description 
(such as recycling or dumping) since this is the usual description 
for departements of administrations, non governmental organisations 
and enterprises.

An unmoderated mailing list which would provide a world wide forum for a
serious discussion by people involved with collecting, fractioning, 
dumping, conditioning and recycling wastes or people which treat 
them, so that they can reused for a different purpose, as well as by 
people, who are cronfronted with the dangers of wastes in everyday 
life.

To assist governments, NGOs, environmentalists and scientists in the
acquisition of waste-related information as well as an informative 
arena on the many different world wide techniques of conditioning, 
recycling and reusing wastes.

Specific topics may include but are not limited to:

+ the many different types of wastes and their effection on the 
ecosystems in the soil, the rivers, the atmosphere and the seas and 
oceans
+ dumping (nowadays or in the past) of toxic wastes in landfill sites
+ sealing and watertighten of landfill sites and underground dumping
sites
+ different world-wide skills and techniques of conditioning, 
recycling and reusing wastes
+ environmental impact of waste treating plants and landfill sites
+ pros and cons of waste combustion and the rank of its spent air
+ energy production as thermal recycling of wastes
+ specific problems of transport of hazardous wastes and waste oils
+ the effection of "waste-loss" on the seas and oceans
+ pacticable collection systems
+ wastewater use, compostable materials 
+ reuse of tyres, waste-paper, packings, etc.
+ hazards of waste batteries, neon tubes, refrigerator-liquid, 
synthetic products, etc.
