image of Development of criteria for acceptance of monolithic waste at landfills

A Nordic study has been carried out to develop a methodology for the setting of criteria for acceptance of monolithic waste at landfills in accordance with the requirements in the Council Decision 2003/33/EC, to recommend appropriate methods to test monolithic waste and to propose associated criteria/limit values for acceptance of monolithic waste at landfills. This report contains the main conclusions of the study. The study was financed by the Working Group for products and waste (The PA-group) under the Nordic Council of Ministers.

Conclusions and recommendations

“Monolithic waste” is not clearly defined in the Landfill Directive and the Council Decision 2003/33/EC. Most of the existing definitions of “monolithic” waste refer to certain minimum dimensions and physical and mechanical properties of a test body that ensure its integrity over a certain period of time (usually the duration of a so-called tank leaching test).
