Eu waste hazardousness assessment - proposition of methods


The European waste hazardousness classification is currently under revision by the DG ENV of the European Commission and the Member States. This paper proposes some methods for measuring or calculating some Hazard Properties (HP). Laboratory test batteries for assessing HP 1 'Explosive', HP 2 'Oxidising', HP 3 'Flammable' and HP 14 'Ecotoxic' are proposed. For calculations of HP 3 to 8, 10, 11 and 13 to 14, a general analytical protocol for the determination of elements and substances in waste has been developed in France and is submitted to CEN TC292 'Characterisation of waste' for standardization. All the organic substances, mineral elements and main anions are identified and quantified if their concentration is greater than > 0.1% or a lower threshold. For mineral elements, a stepwise approach for the difficult speciation of elements in mineral substances in waste is proposed. In a first 'worst case' approach, for the different HPs, tables with concentration limits triggering the classification control are presented. For HP 14, two additional 'worst case' methods are proposed, as well as an approach based on leachate concentration, taking into account the aquatic bioavailability of potential pollutants of waste. Detailed proposition of methods with tables of EC50, NOEC and M factors for hundreds of organic and mineral substances for calculation of HP 14 are provided in a full technical document.
