At present there is an admitted scarcity of industrial waste disposal systems and sites, and considerable difficulties in determining appropriate sites and processes. This work documents the setting up of a decision support system for the rational management of toxic and noxious industrial waste, to minimise its impact on the surrounding region. The system, named RITO, consists of eight separate modules, including a database of geographical information. The assessment of impact is presented in the form of two indices: the local impact index calculated on a parish basis, and the global scenario index.
