About this book

This reference work presents an analysis of the European legislative framework governing waste management and disposal. Waste legislation in the European Union member states derives in large measure directly from European Community directives and regulations. A thorough understanding of the applicable European law is therefore essential for all those involved in waste management and their legal advisers. The author provides a systematic description and analysis of the framework Directive on waste, general laws relating to civil liability, regulations of specific waste management operations (transboundary movements, transport, incineration, dumping and incineration and dumping at sea) and regulations specific to certain categories of waste (hazardous waste, PCB waste, waste oils, packaging, batteries, TiO2 waste, sewage sludge, animal waste and radioactive waste). It further considers the institutional framework and categories of legal measures that have shaped waste legislation, the basic legal principles arising from the Treaties and the political guidelines which lie at the basis of all current and planned regulations.
