Abstract

This paper investigates the current situation of industrial solid waste disposal in China. Recent Chinese literature about industrial solid waste disposal in China has been revieved and data are analysed on the amount of industrial solid waste production and disposal in Wuhan City in 1992. The results show a rapid increase in the total amount of industrial solid wastes in China: It was about 580 million tonnes in 1990 and could reach 750 million tonnes in 2000. The total amount of industrial solid waste in Wuhan was 5.6 million tonnes in 1992, in which 5.0 million tonnes were recycled, 30000 tonnes were treated physically or chemically and finally disposed, 0.31 million tonnes were deposited near the plant, and 0.26 million tonnes were discharged into rivers, lakes and seas. The amount of the stockpiled discharged wastes, especially hazardous waste which cause considerable pollution in China, is still very large. To overcome existing industrial solid waste management problems in China, some measures are suggested in this paper.
