Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recently, there has been increasing discussion regarding sustainable development and the achievement of the goals set by the United Nations. One of the global challenges on the way to sustainable development is municipal solid waste (MSW) management. The disposal of MSW is a serious problem for the environment and human health. According to forecasts, the production of MSW may reach as much as 2.6 billion tons per year by 2025, which is due to, among other factors, population growth, urbanization, industrialization and economic development.

Recently, much attention has been devoted to limit the landfilling of municipal waste. However, in many countries it is still one of the most popular methods of disposing of MSW, considered to be an easy and inexpensive solution.

The purpose of this Special Issue is to increase knowledge about sustainable waste management and landfill technology.

In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Challenges for sustainable waste management;
  • Impact of MSW management on the environment;
  • Waste storage technology—case studies;
  • Problems related to waste management;
  • Concepts and practices related to waste management and storage technologies in selected countries;
  • Legal conditions related to waste management and storage technologies in selected countries;
  • Landfills monitoring.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.
