Focus and Scope

The Journal of Residuals Science and Technology (JRST) provides a forum for the publication of technical research on environmental residuals of two kinds. Residuals discussed include, first, unprocessed pollutants that survive after pollution control processes are applied. Thus the journal publishes research examining the effects of potentially hazardous residues remaining after or resulting from wastewater, water, air, solid, and industrial waste treatment. Second, the journal will publish investigations into techniques for monitoring, controlling and managing air, water and soil pollutants that enter, and remain in, the environment.  This type of residual comprises chemicals and bioactives generated by communities and industries, including agriculture, food processing, chemical and pharmaceutical production, and the medical sector. Together with monitoring technology and fate analysis, the journal invites work on new strategies to limit and mitigate pollutants, especially those proven to be health hazards and thus subjects of biomedical analysis or clinical intervention.
