The Waste Framework Directive (WASTE FRAMEWORK DIRECTIVE, 2008) specifies certain measures to ensure that waste is recovered or disposed of in accordance with Article 13, i.e. without endangering human health or harming the environment. Specific measures laid down in the WFD include the introduction and common use of appropriate classification systems (LoW: Art. 7; recovery and disposal codes: Annex I and II), the principle of producer responsibility (Art. 14, Art. 15), the issue of permits for waste treatment facilities (Art. 23), the drafting of waste management plans (Art. 28), the requirement that the actors of waste management shall be subject to appropriate periodic inspections (Art 34) and their obligation to keep records on their activities (Art. 35).

Hazardous waste classification and re-use (end of waste) by New Waste Directive, CLP and REACH Regulations
© Wasteconsult international (6/2010)
Hazardous waste’ means waste which displays one or more of the hazardous properties H. Attribution of the hazardous properties H is derived from risk phrases R coming from Directives 67/548/EEC and 1999/45/EC. New CLP Regulation (repealing above Directives) in place of risk phrases R introduces hazard statements H. That means, that soon we will derive hazardous properties H (1 or 2-digit) from hazard statements H (3-digit) of it’s components.

FIELD TESTS ON LANDFILL CLAY BARRIER SUBMITTED TO LOCAL SUBSIDENCE

Since 2003, the french radioactive waste agency ANDRA is responsible for the site for the storage of very low level nuclear waste, located in the Aube, in France. This kind of disposal facility requires a lot of precautionary measures. To ensure the radioactive waste containment, the confinement of the capping cover of the storage cells is obtained by the association of a compacted clay layer and a geomembrane (Camp et al., 2005). The cross section of the barrier is presented on the Figure 2. Due to the structure of the capping system, there is a risk of damage of the geomembrane due to the compaction of the overlying clay layer. So, compaction energy has to be relatively weak not to damage this one.

TESTING FOR BEHAVIOR OF SOME GEOSYNTHETIC MATERIALS AT COVERING DEPOSITS OF RADIOACTIVE WASTE RESULTED FROM URANIUM ORE EXTRACTION – CASE STUDY

Mining exploration, exploitation and mineral deposits preparation activities produced huge volumes of sterile materials which are stored as dumps and tailings ponds. These wastes involved large contaminated areas which must be remediating when the mining activities were stopped. The present remediation techniques and technologies for ecological reconstruction, based on using of different natural, synthetically or composite materials are the satisfactory solutions regarding the stabilization and waterproofing remediation.

About 20 million tons [Mg] of different types of industrial wastes are accumulated annually in Bulgaria (fly ash and residue gypsum from flue gas desulfurisation units of thermal power plants (TPPs), phosphogypsum from chemical industry, lime ash and slag from metallurgy, etc.).
