268 Symposium--S2/S11 Joint Symposium On the Beneficial Re-Use of Wastes and Environmental Implications of Waste Recycling: II

Oral Session
S02 Soil Chemistry A consequence of the increasing world population is an exponential production of agricultural, industrial, and municipal wastes. There is a consensus that recycling should be a major aspect of waste management. Solid and liquid waste can potentially be utilized to improve soil quality, remediate impacted sites, or prevent environmental degradation. In addition, because of the potential contamination of water and soil resources, the fate of pollutants that may be associated with these wastes must also be considered. This session will examine (1) beneficial re-use of wastes, (2) speciation issues of the pollutants within the waste, and (3) interactions between the waste components and the soil and water systems during the recycling process. Laboratory scale and field studies are welcome. Examples of contributions include, but are not limited to, wastewater re-use, soil application of organic wastes, recycled materials in contact with natural media (e.g. road construction materials, bridge pillars), wastes for constructing synthetic soils, and industrial wastes utilized for improving environmental quality.
