IDENTIFICATION OF IN-SITU PROCESSES CONTROLLING EMISSIONS OF A STABILISED WASTE LANDFILL BY FIELD MEASUREMENTS AND GEOCHEMICAL MODELLING

Stabilisation/solidification is a technology aimed at changing the physical/chemical properties of (hazardous) waste materials in order to reduce the release of contaminants in the environment. The technology aims at changing the release process from a percolation dominated to a diffusion or surface-dissolution dominated regime. For this form of treatment of hazardous waste for disposal in non-hazardous waste sites, the regulatory framework is still in development. In setting criteria for landfill classes in Annex II of the EU Landfill Directive (1999) it proved to be impossible to derive such values for stabilised monolithic waste due to lack of information on release and release controlling factors in stabilised waste monofills.

The stabilisation of waste for disposal is one of the major routes for treatment of hazardous waste materials. However, the regulatory framework for treatment of hazardous waste disposal in non-hazardous waste sites is still in development. For the time being, regulatory controls are referred to the Member States. Several Member States are currently working on the development of criteria. One of the major problems is the general lack of understanding of the chemical/physical processes in a stabilised waste landfill under field conditions.

bifa-Text Nr. 57: Die Abfallwirtschaft im Jahr 2030 - Eine Szenarioanalyse nicht nur für Bayern
© bifa Umweltinstitut GmbH (5/2012)
In einer neuen Studie des bifa Umweltinstituts werden mögliche Entwicklungen der regionalen, nationalen und internationalen Rahmenbedingungen für die bayerische Abfallwirtschaft im Jahr 2030 dargestellt sowie deren Auswirkungen auf die Abfallwirtschaftsstrukturen und auf die Ökoeffizienz. Das Projekt wurde im Auftrag des Bayerischen Staatsministeriums für Umwelt und Gesundheit durchgeführt. Die Ergebnisse bieten auch anderen Behörden, Unternehmen und Verbänden in Deutschland eine Basis für die eigene Positionierung und Strategieentwicklung.

ASSESSMENT OF HYDROLOGICAL PARAMETERS IN PRE-TREATED WASTE BY TIME DOMAIN REFLECTOMETRY
© IWWG International Waste Working Group (10/2007)
The water in contact with waste materials is one of the most important determinants for longterm emissions from landfilled wastes (Kjeldsen et al., 2002). It plays a major role for the chemical and biological reactions in landfilled wastes (Mora-Naranjo et al., 2004, He et al., 2006), and in biological reactions in pre-treatment processes (Christensen, 2001). In humid and semi-arid areas, the water content determines the efficacy of final caps (Börjesson et al., 1998; Yanful et al., 2003). The water level inside a landfill has been suggested to influence heavy metal emissions via the leachate (Karlsson et al., 2005). The EU directive 1999/31/EC gives requirements for the reduction and control of leachate production.

STUDY OF EMISSIONS INTO THE AIR AND WATERS OF “EPER” POLLUTANTS BY THE FRENCH LANDFILLS

Industrial production processes account for a important share of the overall pollution in Europe (for pollutants such as greenhouse gases, acidifying substances, wastewater emissions and waste). The European Union (EU) has established common rules for permitting and controlling industrial facilities in the IPPC Directive 96/61/EC of 24 September 1996 (OJ L 257 10.10.1996). The IPPC Directive is about minimising pollution from various industrial sources throughout the EU. Operators of industrial facilities are required to obtain an authorization (environmental permit) from the authorities in the EU countries. Besides, this directive ensures that the public has a right to be informed on environmental effect of industrial facilities, by having access to an inventory of principal emissions and sources responsible.

LEACHING PROPERTIES OF VARIOUS LEACHING PROPERTIES OF VARIOUS CONDITIONS: TESTING IN LYSIMETER AND LAB SCALE
© IWWG International Waste Working Group (10/2007)
The waste acceptance criteria at landfills (WAC) specified in the EU Council Decision 2003/33/EC of 19 December establishing criteria and procedures for acceptance of granular waste at landfills pursuant to Article 16 and Annex II of Directive 1999/31/EC on the landfill of waste are currently being implemented in many countries, including Denmark. The EU WAC specify limit values for leaching tests performed on wastes to landfilled, and the Council Decision requires wastes and waste streams to be characterised to determine at which categories of landfills they can be accepted. At the same time it may be determined whether a waste fulfils (national and/or) criteria for utilisation.
