Burial means the disposition of human remains, traditionally below ground. In the industrial context, burial typically refers to the disposal of waste materials or hazardous substances by placing them in the ground, usually in a designated landfill or burial site.

Burial is a common method of waste disposal and is used for a wide range of materials, including industrial and household waste, chemical waste, and radioactive waste. The aim of burial is to isolate the waste from the environment to prevent contamination and harm to human health and the environment.

Examples of materials that may be buried in an industrial context include:

  • Industrial waste: waste generated by factories, processing plants, and other industrial activities.
  • Hazardous waste: waste that poses a threat to human health or the environment due to its chemical or physical properties.
  • Construction and demolition waste: waste generated from construction and demolition activities, such as concrete, wood, and metal.
  • Medical waste: waste generated by healthcare facilities, such as needles, syringes, and contaminated materials.

Burial is a controversial method of waste disposal due to the potential risks to human health and the environment, including groundwater contamination, soil pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions. As a result, many countries have introduced regulations and guidelines to ensure the safe and responsible burial of waste materials.
