  • Ecotoxicological Characterization of Waste

    The ecotoxicological characterization of waste is part of their assessment as hazardous or non-hazardous according to the European Waste List. Despite its transfer into national law in the waste list ordinance 2001 no methodological recommendations have been provided to cover the hazard criterion (H14 'ecotoxicity') which was taken over from the ...

  • Health Impacts of Waste Management Policies

    This book examines the health effects of waste deposit sites, incinerators and other options for waste management, focusing in particular on the impacts of halogenated hydrocarbons, and byproducts of incineration. These results are linked with waste policy options, of which reviews in four EU countries and the United States are provided. ...

  • Effluents from Alternative Demilitarization Technologies

    The book assesses a broad range of effluents (process residues) from a selection of worldwide technologies that have been proposed as alternatives to incineration for the remediation and destruction of chemical warfare agents and associated matériel. Treatment of metal parts and explosive or energetic materials are considered. The alternative ...

  • Contained Gas Rule Changes

    New EPA regulation classifies 'oxidizers' as 'incinerators' meaning if this is not changed, the emissions standards and regulatory requirements associated with operating oxidizers become much more ...

  • A Better, Cheaper Way to Regulate Mercury

    The best way to regulate the release of mercury to our environment is through pollution prevention – placing a declining cap on the use of mercury in products and processes. Such a cap could limit mercury releases to 10% of current levels from intentional uses, and 50% of process emissions by 2010. This approach would be far more effective ...
