  1. Hazardous wastes and economic risk reduction : case study, Poland.

    Article - En anglais

    A concise summary balance of industrial and hazardous waste is given reflecting the situation in Poland.

    Nearly 130 million tonnes of waste wer generated annually in the past in more than 1300 larger industrial plants Approximately 1800 million tonnes of industrial waste is already stockpiled The amount of hazardous waste generated per year was 0.3 and 1.0 millio tonnes of the first and second class of toxicity, respectively.

    Seventee existing on-site incinerators cannot treat the whole amount of solid an hazardous waste generated.

    Therefore, landfilling is still the most widel used method of waste disposal.

    Decontamination of the abandoned areas lef by the Soviet Army, and reclamation of some hundreds of storage sites fille with outdated pesticides are now added to the national plan of wast management.

    Its implementation, including introduction of the bes available and best managed technologies of hazardous waste treatment an disposal, will take at least 20 to 30 years.
