The lands which are waterlogged and saline are also termed as wastelands. The loss of fertility followed by erosion also leads to the conversion of marginal forest lands into wastelands. Industrial Wastewater Treatment, Recycling and Reuse is an accessible reference to assist you when handling wastewater treatment and recycling.

It features an instructive compilation of methodologies, including advanced physico-chemical methods and biological methods of treatment. Suitability of Industrial Wasteland for Reclamation. Purpose. The industrial wasteland should be evaluated before being reclaimed into agricultural farmlands to find out which factors prevent reclamation of wasteland and to exclude those wastelands that are not suitable to be reclaimed.

Major causes of wasteland formation The various purposes, for which land can be used, include agriculture and horticulture for food production, energy production, human dwelling and industrial/commercial purpose. But its overuse makes it unfit for human use. The National Wasteland Development Board (NWDB) has classified wastelands into.

The different methods used for the reclamation of wastelands are: 1. These lands can be brought under cultivation by using excess water and fertilizers.

Afforestation and agronomical methods are used to conserve the soil, which help us to use it for agriculture.

Wasteland are the lands which are unfit for agricultural use and various other use. They cannot be used for grazing purposes and any other use because the soil has been coarse and there has been a lack of vegetation in the wasteland.

Wasteland reclamation refers to the development of the wasteland so that they become available for the use. Some examples are: Waterlogged and marshy land, Degraded forest, Shifting cultivation land, saline land, mined and industrial land.

Non Culturable land: That wasteland which cannot be developed for agricultural, forestation or any other productive purposes by any means.

Example: Desert land, Rocky land, Glacier land, Snow covered land. of agricultural lands are being utilized for non-agricultural purposes.

Despite its many benefits, some potential drawbacks exist to landfill reclama-tion. This technology may release methane and other gases, for example, that result from decomposing wastes.
