About this book

The ecotoxicological characterization of waste is part of the assessment as hazardous or non-hazardous according to the European Waste List. Despite its transfer into national law in the waste list ordinance 2001 no methodological recommendations have been provided to cover the hazard criterion (H14 ecotoxicity) which was taken over from the legislation on dangerous substances. Based on the recommendations of CEN guideline 14735 (2005), an international ring test was organised by BAM, FH Giessen-Friedberg and ECT GmbH. The background, organisation, methods, results and recommendations are compiled in this book.


Summary: Overview of the overall results of the ring test.- Background.- Additional investigations.- Presentation of the basic test battery.- Presentation of the additional aquatic test battery.- Additional investigations.- Further development and future application of biotests in waste characterization.- Annex.
