Characterisation and Treatment of Water Industry Waste Streams for Landfill Disposal
Emerging legislation controlling the handling and disposal of wastes will have a major impact on the UK Water Industry. Landfill waste acceptance procedures have been introduced and non-hazardous wastes will require pre-treatment prior to landfilling from October 2007. Following a review of waste streams generated by the Water Industry, the main focus of this work was to provide a characterisation dataset on the priority waste streams of sewer grit and sewage screenings. A UK-wide sampling and testing programme was carried out to encompass the major sources of variability in these waste streams and provide basic characterisation information as required for landfill acceptance. An assessment of existing treatment processes was undertaken to identify those that could meet pre-treatment requirements for landfill.
