The Journal of Hazardous Materials publishes full length research papers, reviews, and case studies which improve our understanding of the hazards and risks certain materials pose to people and the environment or deal with ways of controlling these hazards and associated risks. The Editors particularly welcome proposals for review articles. To limit the scope the following areas are excluded: standard municipal and waste and wastewater treatment processes; manufacturing of explosives.

A new solution for wastewater remediation

Synthetic dyes are used across a wide variety of industries and constitute a serious concern when it comes to water pollution. These dyes are not only toxic, but they also persist in the environment for a long time without ...

Single-cell analysis reveals heterogeneity in metal adsorption

Biosorption is the removal of contaminants from a sample by adsorbing them onto the surface of a biological material. It is expected to provide environmental and economic benefits compared with conventional separation techniques. ...

Identifying toxic materials in water with machine learning

Waste materials from oil sands extraction, stored in tailings ponds, can pose a risk to the natural habitat and neighboring communities when they leach into groundwater and surface ecosystems. Until now, the challenge for ...

Rural air pollution may be as hazardous as urban, study finds

New research shows that chemical reactivity, seasonality and distribution of airborne particulate matter are critical metrics when considering air pollution's impact on human health. Current environmental regulations focus ...
