The IMPEL project “Reinforcement Programme on Inspection Skills according to Landfill Sites” started in 2011 and Turkey has been participating the project since 2016. One of the products of this project, has been the Inspection Guidance for Landfill inspections according to European Union Legislation, which was published on the IMPEL website. The guidance book explains the EU Legislation on landfilling and general criteria for environmental inspections, waste acceptance criteria, biogas control, water management, BATs for top and bottom layer and the aspects for both site inspections and desk studies. In the last part of the guidance book, there are check lists for inspection covering all these subjects.
Promotion of IMPEL products and output
One of the overal aims of IMPEL’s work is to disseminate any of their products or tools developed by the projects to support the practioners on the ground. To facilitate this for the Turkish environmental inspectors, the Landfill Inspection Guidance has been translated into the Turkish.
