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.

The TAC methodology for development of acceptance criteria

The criteria and limit values for acceptance of “monolithic” waste at landfills for non-hazardous and hazardous waste landfills must provide (at least) the same level of environmental protection as given by the corresponding criteria for granular waste. It will therefore be reasonable to follow the same basic procedure as the one used by the TAC Subcommittee on the Landfill Directive to set criteria for granular waste in relation to groundwater protection with appropriate adjustments to account for the “monolithic” nature of the waste. This chapter describes the stepwise procedure used by the TAC Subcommittee. (Hjelmar et al. 2001, Hjelmar 2003, DHI & ECN 2004).
