Development of criteria for acceptance of monolithic waste at landfills

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.

Definition of “monolithic” waste

As already mentioned in Chapter 2, neither the Landfill Directive nor the Council Decision of 19 December 2002 provide any definitions of “monolithic” waste. This is unfortunate in view of the requirement in the Council decision that member states must set national criteria for acceptance of “monolithic” waste at landfills. Generally, “monolithic waste” has been perceived as waste occurring as blocks or large coherent masses of concrete-like material of substantial strength and very low permeability (this is consistent with the reference in Article 6 (c) of the Landfill Directive to solidified and vitrified waste).
