Abstract This paper presents a research project on the cost-benefits analysis of industrial waste storage and/or disposal in Italy, with particular emphasis on the industries regulated by Decree No. 334/99 (Implementation of Council Directive 96/82/EC on the control of major accident hazards involving dangerous substances) and its socioeconomic impact. The objective of the project was to provide indications and assessments for the optimization of reusing/recycling industrial waste to reduce the financial and environmental costs of its management and disposal.
