Abstract
Numerous toxic and hazardous compounds are being generated for commercial, industrial and agricultural uses. Most of these materials are eventually released into the environment. This study documented the existence of biological, chemical and physical transformation processes of hazardous wastes in the environment. It was determined that the rates of transformation of these hazardous materials, when applied and/or discharged to the environment, are slow. Case studies confirmed that persistency of certain hazardous materials results in the bioaccumulation of residues in living systems. A lack of knowledge of the fate and clinical manifestation of persistant residues in living systems dictates the need for implementation of the described scheme of control technology.
