Gaseous waste is a waste product in gas form resulting from various human activities, such as manufacturing, processing, material consumption or biological processes. Gaseous waste that is held in a closed container falls into the category of solid waste for disposal purposes.

Most human activity results in some form of waste. Gaseous waste can be anything from the gas expelled in a burp to the exhaust from a car’s engine.

How waste is disposed is of vital importance to many people and organizations around the world. Hazardous waste that is discarded without proper containment leads to major biological and environmental hazards.
