Waste research is necessary in order to check various possibilities of their management, which is extremely important from the point of view of environmental protection as well as economic efficiency of the enterprise.
By laboratory tests, the waste producer may verify, if waste considered as hazardous actually contains concentrations of substances, that make it hazardous or determine, if the waste has the appropriate parameters to be treated as an alternative fuel or a by-product.
The waste code is initial and the most necessary thing. It depends on the source of its creating. It can inform us also if the waste is hazardous or not. The regulation specifying waste codes is Rozporządzenie Ministra Klimatu z dnia 2 stycznia 2020 r. w sprawie katalogu odpadów.
When we know the waste code, before we will decide about its store on the landfill, we can check if the waste can be used and how as well as if waste analysis should be made and in which scope. This information is included in Rozporządzenie Ministra Środowiska z dnia 11 maja 2015 r. w sprawie odzysku odpadów poza instalacjami i urządzeniami.
The recipient of fuel (for example a cement plant or power plant) determines the scope of analysis for waste which will be potentially used as alternative fuel (RDF), but fuel supplier or distributor is responsible for making this analysis.
However, if it is necessary to store the waste in a landfill the analysis should be adapted to Rozporządzenie Ministra Gospodarki z dnia 16 lipca 2015 r. w sprawie dopuszczania odpadów do składowania na składowiskach.
This regulation informs about the scope of analysis which is necessary to determine if the waste can be directed to a specific type of landfill (landfill for inert waste, landfill for non-hazardous and inert waste or a landfill for hazardous waste).
Accredited laboratories of the WESSLING Group are specialized in testing various types of waste and they offer a wide scope of analysis.
