12 Why should we do something about waste? ENVIRONMENTAL Increase in the lifespan of landfills Control of pollution and reduction of the use of natural resources SOCIAL ECONOMIC Potential for job creation and generating income NIMBY effect Reduction of costs with public services, such as servicing contaminated areas with garbage collectors, collection and public health problems Economy of energy and raw materials
13 Origin The generation of waste is associated with the existence of man and human activities. Initially, generated waste was easily assimilated by the environment. Waste generation is growing and its composition is increasingly complex.
14 DIFFERENT TERMS TO MEAN THE SAME THING WASTE GARBAGE REFUSE SCRAP How is it defined? Subjective concept that generates uncertainties, that is why express text is included in regulations
15 According to the Basel Convention Any substance or object which the holder discards or intends or is required to discard
16 TYPES OF WASTE by origin Domestic and urban solid waste Industrial solid waste Medical solid waste Civil works solid waste Special solid waste
17 TYPES OF WASTE by potential effects Hazardous waste: due to its nature, it may have adverse effects on human health and the environment. Non-reactive hazardous waste: it has undergone treatment, whereby it has lost its hazardous nature. Inert waste: it does not undergo any significant physical, chemical or biological transformation. Non-hazardous waste: it does not belong to any of the above (domestic, catering, etc.).
18 Hazardous wastes They may cause damage to health or the environment for being inherently hazardous when exhibiting any of the following characteristics: Corrosive Reactive Explosive Toxic Flammable Biological-Infectious / Ecotoxic
19 How do we know if waste is hazardous? It is included in specific lists. It is included in lists of waste generated in specific processes. It exhibits any of the hazardous characteristics (CRETIB) exceeds limits of standardized tests. It contains substances defined as hazardous.
20 Definitions Basel Convention Hazardous wastes: Wastes that belong to any category contained in Annex I, unless they do not possess any of the characteristics contained in Annex III. Wastes that are not covered under the above paragraph but are defined as, or are considered to be, hazardous wastes by the domestic legislation of the Party of export, import or transit.
21 Basel Convention Annex I Annex I presents: 18 types of streams or processes that generate hazardous wastes (Y1 Y18). 27 elements or compounds that when present as constituents in waste define it as hazardous (Y19 Y45).
23 Basel Convention Annex III It defines the hazardous characteristics H1 H3 Explosive Flammable liquids H4-1 Flammable solids H4-2 Substances or wastes liable to spontaneous combustion H4-3 Substances or wastes which, in contact with water emit flammable gases H5-1 Oxidizing H5-2 Organic peroxides H 6-1 H 6-2 H8 H10 H11 Poisonous (Acute) Infectious substances Corrosives Liberation of toxic gases in contact with air or water Toxic (Delayed or chronic) H12 Ecotoxic H13 Capable, by any means, after disposal, of yielding another material, e.g., leachate, which possesses any of the characteristics listed above
24 Basel Convention Annex VIII and IX To facilitate the identification of hazardous wastes, new annexes were added (1998). Annex VIII (List A): wastes characterized as hazardous. Annex IX (List B): wastes that are not considered hazardous. BUT: Annex III can be used to demonstrate that a waste is not hazardous, and vice versa with Annex IX.
25 Concept of risk Risk is associated with the exposure to hazard Probability that the direct EXPOSURE to hazardous wastes, or to the contamination they generate, causes adverse effects or damage to: Human health Ecosystem Environmental compartments Goods RISK = f (hazard, exposure)
26 Concept of risk HAZARD is inherent to waste and can only be changed by treating it; RISK can be managed in order to minimize it EXPOSURE Direct and Indirect HAZARD POTENTIAL Any of the hazardous characteristics HAZARD analysis + EXPOSURE analysis enable a RISK ASSESSMENT
27 Sustainable Waste Management Human activity Common attitudes: NIMBY: Not in my back yard NIMET: Not in my elected term But BANANA: Build Absolutely Nothing Anytime, Near Anybody Solid waste CATNAP: Cheapest Available Technology Narrowly Avoiding Prosecution Response Sustainable Waste Management: environmentally efficient, economically affordable and socially acceptable Strategy 1. Reduce the amount of waste generated 2. Develop Integrated Waste Management Systems to manage waste inevitably generated
28 Minimization Minimization affects waste volume, but also its nature First option to consider, the most desirable Reduces treatment systems Reduces wastes and inefficiencies Saves resources
29 Integrated Waste Management INTEGRATED WASTE MANAGEMENT: Integrated waste management systems combine waste streams with collection, treatment and final disposal methods, with the objective of achieving environmental benefits, economic optimization and society s acceptance. This will lead to a practical waste management system for any specific region. The key features are: 1. Overall approach (all actors involved) 2. Use of a range of collection and treatment methods 3. Management of all materials in the waste stream 4. Environmentally effective 5. Economically affordable 6. Socially acceptable
30 Three pillars are required for it to be sustainable, if one is missing
31 Principle of Hierarchy This principle was established in Agenda 21, and was later reintroduced and developed in different laws and regulations, being one of the most universally applied principles in waste management. It establishes the following order of preference for managing waste: Waste Reduction and Minimization Reuse Materials Recycling and Biological Treatment Thermal Treatment (with energy recovery) Thermal Treatment (without energy recovery) Final Disposal It states that the possibilities of the previous operation should be exhausted before moving to the next one. This principle is criticized and a holistic approach is suggested based on the concept of INTEGRATED WASTE MANAGEMENT AND LIFE CYCLE.
32 Principle of Extended Producer Responsibility Principle of Extended Producer/Importer Responsibility for the final management of products. It transfers to producers or importers of certain products the responsibility for collecting, recycling, recovering, treating or disposing of their post-consumer products. It applies for certain mass consumer products. They are also responsible for financing these activities.
33 Principle of Extended Producer Responsibility Principle of Extended Producer/Importer Responsibility for the final management of products. The Polluter Pays principle is applied. The waste generator (CONSUMER) is the one who finally pays for the service, not for a fee but in the price of the product. But the generator does not assume responsibility for management, the producer or importer does. The roles of payment responsibility and operational responsibility are separated. This method is fairer than a municipal charge, since only those who consume pay, not the whole population.
34 LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT: LIFE CYCLE ANALYSIS Definition: compilation and evaluation of the inputs, outputs and the potential environmental impacts of a product system throughout its life cycle. (ISO 14040: Environmental Management 1997 Life Cycle Assessment Principles and Framework) It is an environmental management tool used to understand how a product or service is provided from cradle to grave. While it may seem an ideal environmental tool, it has its weaknesses, since it does not consider actual impacts, i.e. when, where and how they are released into the environment. To take this into account, additional elements must be used. LIFE CYCLE OF SOLID WASTE: to predict, as accurately as possible, the environmental burdens of an Integrated Waste Management system.

39 CLEANER PRODUCTION APPROACH Waste/Effluent/Emission is generated! Why? Where? How? When? How much?
40 CLEANER PRODUCTION Cleaner Production (adopted by UNEP) preventive approach to environmental management. It refers to how goods and services are produced or provided with a minimal environmental impact, considering current technologies and financial limits. It is a win-win strategy, since it favors the environment, workers and consumers, while improving company efficiency, profitability and competitiveness.
