Physico-chemical characteristics
The characterisation and classification of waste for transportation, recycle, storage or removal
is provided by the EU legislation framework in order to control accidents hazards with
consequence for human health and the environment.
This paper proposes a guidance for an accredited laboratory as a methodological tool in waste
analysis to be used at local and regional level due to the current Romanian environmental
legislation. Analytical tests are required to establish the exceeding maximum allowable
concentration of physico-chemical characteristics of different types of wastes. The assessment
of characteristics waste status can be made by analyzing all the waste composition, or the
separated fractions of liquid or solid phases, or the leacheable content. To answer to the need
of enhancing the precision and comparability of waste analysis data, there are suitable
standardized methods available for sampling, treatment and analysis.
A review of actual legislation and standardized methods for waste analysis is presented briefly
in this paper.
