This booklet includes the result of a three-year learn programme through a joint workforce of specialists from 4 varied ecu international locations. the main target of this learn was once on investigating the potential of utilizing deserted underground mines for the disposal of damaging chemical waste with negligible toxins of our environment. The learn paintings used to be involved in: the potential for utilizing deserted underground mines for disposal of damaging chemical waste with negligible pollutants of our environment; the houses and behavior of waste-isolating clay fabrics and useful methods of getting ready and utilising them; improvement of software program instruments to evaluate the soundness, functionality and hazards linked to assorted repository innovations, contemplating the long term protection of the biosphere; the separating potential of reference repositories; the several ways for dealing with dangerous chemical waste. The undertaking has established that damaging waste will be thoroughly disposed in underground mines only if enough evaluate, making plans and layout techniques are hired. info can be incorporated at the collection of website place, layout and development of repositories, predicting levels of illness of groundwater within the atmosphere, estimation of separating capability of reference repositories, fee estimation of this process compared to another ways, and lots of different correct concerns. worthy to researchers and engineers operating within the box of harmful (chemical) waste disposal, this name also will considerably relief specialists facing nuclear waste.

This waste includes a number of heavy metals and the physical form of this waste makes it appropriate for storage within artificial barriers. 18 DISPOSAL OF HAZARDOUS WASTE IN UNDERGROUND MINES • Although waste from construction and demolition activities and inorganic waste from thermal processes are of major interest, waste from organic chemical processes should be also considered as a main hazardous waste substream due to their environmental importance. This type of waste has longterm interactions with the environment, its pollutants are bioaccumulative and part of this waste represents the greatest problem of the disposal of outdated pesticides.

The production of electrical and electronic equipment is one of the fastest growing domains of manufacturing industry in the Western world. New applications of electrical and electronic equipment are increasing significantly. There is hardly any part of life where electrical and electronic equipment are not used. This development leads to an important increase in WEEE. The WEEE stream is a complex mixture of materials and components. In combination with the constant development of new materials and chemicals having environmental effects, this leads to increasing problems at the waste stage.

Necessary, one of the basic components of design and construction. Not necessary if water does not enter the waste body. A kind of LCS should be constructed for potential leaks. Most of the time, negligible or no wastewater is generated. Safe storage of wastewater and transfer to wastewater treatment facilities is an indicated solution. Depends on the underground mine conditions – may also be negligible. NEED AND POTENTIAL FOR UNDERGROUND DISPOSAL Licensing Limited Underground HW disposal facility 35 Surface HW disposal facility Operational issues Stability Environmental impacts of possible major accidents (SEVESO) Environmental monitoring In situ treatment options Long-term–after-care monitoring Cost issues Construction cost Operational cost Underground HW disposal facility Crucial point for the waste body formulation.
