Treatment of waste before landfilling according to art. 6 of the Landfill Directive

This Report provides the results of the section of the IMPEL Landfill Project focused on the implementation by EU Member States of art.6 of Directive 1999/31/EC on the landfill of waste, in

  • an analysis of criteria and technologies for waste treatment
  • permitting instructions for the mixing of the waste
  • observations on a common methodology to evaluate ANC when dealing with Stable non reactive waste
