IJETM is an authoritative source of information in the field of environmental technology, policy and management. It deals with the shorter term, covering engineering, technical, policy and management solutions. It is one of three key journals which together offer comprehensive coverage of key environmental issues: IJEP focuses on early and medium-term challenges involving scientific prediction, modelling and assessment, and IJGEnvI focuses on longer-term environmental scenarios, ecological economics, climate change and biodiversity.
Topics covered include
- Cleaner and zero emission technologies
- Technological developments for environmental improvements, pollution control and economic development
- New industrial process methods, pollution control improvements and economic development
- Industry and energy technologies for sustainable product development and sustainable production
- Eco-design and eco-efficiency
- Ecologically driven manufacturing and services
- Concepts of environmental engineering and protection
- European and international law, regulations and technological standards
- Incentives for innovation in environmental improvements
- International comparison of welfare and environmental enhancement of cutting-edge technologies
- Investment and abatement technologies
- Case studies and evaluation of emerging environmental technologies
- Environmental audit
The objectives of IJETM are to establish an effective channel of communication between policy-makers, government agencies, academics and research institutions, and professionals working in the field, and to provide a forum for them to disseminate information and to learn from each other|s work. The international dimension is emphasised in order to overcome cultural and national barriers and to meet the needs of accelerating technological change and changes in the global economy.
Professionals, academics, managers, researchers and policy makers.
The IJETM publishes original and review papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, management reports, book reviews, and notes, commentaries, and news. Contribution may be by submission or invitation, and suggestions for special issues and publications are welcome.

Ha Noi rocks electronic waste
16 September, 2022
Electronic waste is an enormous, and growing, problem around the world, with unimaginable numbers of broken and obsolete devices and gadgets being fed into a waste stream that threatens to become a deluge. Not only is the problem one of waste and loss of rare and costly materials, but many of the materials, the metals in particular, represent an environmental threat if they enter ecosystems. Regulations at the national and international level attempt to address the problem of electronic waste with different degrees of success. Research published in the International Journal of Environmental Technology and Management, has looked at the problem from the perspective of Vietnam where it is estimated that more than ten million units of electronic waste are generated each year. The study looks at how Vietnam manages its electronic waste under regulations introduced in 2015 on the retrieval and treatment of discarded products and extended producer responsibility. Moreover, it considers how these policies fit into the 2020 law on environmental protection and how the pros and cons of these local regulations and laws might help guide policymakers in other developing nations that are also facing the growing problems of e-waste [...]More details...
Recycling and repurposing plastic waste
8 November, 2022
Researchers in India have reviewed the state of play when it comes to plastics recycling in the International Journal of Environmental Technology and Management. Their main conclusion is that there are huge inefficiencies in plastics recycling and that major improvements are needed to the reprocessing systems so that we might begin to address this growing problem urgently. Soubhagya Keshari Chand of the Central Institute of Petrochemicals Engineering and Technology (CIPET) pat of the Government of India in Odisha and Sasmita Chand of the Centre of Sustainable Built Environment at Manipal Academy of Higher Education in Karnataka, India explain that as with many other nations, plastic waste is an enormous problem thanks to huge consumption and arbitrary disposal. Even places that have recycling facilities in place are often failing to collect and process the vast majority of the plastic waste we produce [...]More details...
Dairy waste to fight cancer
6 May, 2022
Scientists are investigating the potential of microbial chemical weapons for use in various industries, such as horticulture, the food industry, veterinary medicine, and even in cancer treatment. A new promising source for extracting such chemicals from dairy waste is reported in the International Journal of Environmental Technology and Management... Harikrishnan Hariharan of Saintgits College of Engineering, Kottukulam Hills, Kottayam District and V.B. Jyothy and Steffy P. Vinson of the MET's School of Engineering in Thrissur District in Kerala State, India, have investigated sludge from the dairy industry and various other sources, including soil and industrial wastewater. The dairy waste showed great potential as a source of bacteriocins, the team reports [...]More details...
