|Abstract||Semnan Industrial Park (SIP) which is located in the Semnan province is one of the biggest industrial park in Iran. SIP has been promoted its activity regarding environmental management especially in the field of industrial wastes. The main aim of this study was to investigate the present situation of industrial wastes in SIP and to propose the appropriate suggestion for optimization of industrial waste management. In the first stage of the study, quantitative and qualitative analysis of industrial solid wastes have been accomplished. The obtained results showed that the main hazardous wastes of SIP are sludge and asbestos with the amounts of 3500 and 144 Metric tons / year, respectively. Because of different types of the products and diversity of the industrial residues, waste management in SIP is quite a complex task. In most cases, recycling/reuse of the wastes seems to be the best option, although treatment and disposal are also necessary. According to the obtained results, more than 70 percent of the total wastes can be sold to the accredited recycling factories. By implementation of the integrated solid waste management in SIP, the environmental impacts of the wastes will be minimized.|
