  1. Some industrial waste still ends up in local landfills. Incineration is appropriate for some hazardous waste because the high temperatures can destroy some synthetic compounds. Other methods include deep burial and deep-well injection. Chemical treatments such as catalysis alter the chemical structure of hazardous waste, rendering it harmless. Biological treatments use microorganisms, both natural and genetically engineered, to decompose waste.
