"Traditional concept of waste as something produced at the end of our consumption activities has to be challenged by the new zero waste concept. In the zero waste concepts, waste is considered as a transitional phase of resources which can be taken back to the production process or disposed of to landfill. Hence zero waste management systems include product design, consumption, and resource recovery phases. Zero waste products, based on cradle-to-cradle design principles, would eventually not produce any waste during their production stages. At the end of product stage, the life span of the product should easily be extended by repair and thus be ready for reuse again.
The International Journal of Solid provides an international platform on sustainable waste ressources where students, authors and researchers from different linguistic environments have the opportunity to share their valuable scientific experience from their native language to English or from English to other international languages including French, German and Spanish. We believe that OMICS Translation Services is a guarantee for quicker and larger dissemination of knowledge on sustainable waste resources, and a key component for future research."
