Identification of potentially POP-containing Wastes and Recyclates – Derivation of Limit Values


A condition for the setting of limit values is the detailed knowledge of the presence of pollutants in waste, products as well as recyclates. In the present project data were collected on the presence of Hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD), Hexachlorobutadien (HCBD), Polychlorinated naphthalenes (PCN), Pentachlorophenol (PCP) and short chain chlorinated paraffins (SCCP) in relevant waste, products and recyclates in Germany. In addition, an estimation of the quantities of POP-containing waste and recyclates was carried out. On the basis of these data proposals for limit values to be defined in Annex IV of the POP Regulation as well as for certain disposal pathways were derived, which enable a maximised removal of pollutants on the one hand and environmentally sound recycling processes on the other hand.
