Hazardous waste characteristics

Hazardous waste characteristics

Assessment of Waste hazardous quality according to Environment ministry and Public health ministry regulation No. 376/2001 about waste hazardous quality classification in valid statutory text.

H1 Explosiveness

This characteristic have the waste, that can be explosive by the instrumentality of outer heat suggestion or they are sensitive to stroke or to friction or they can have a possibilty to invoke detonate reaction or after ignition proceed fast explosive burning in it. Evaluation is provided according to single results of rated tests.

H2 Oxidizing ability

This characteristic have the solid waste, that can cause fire or heighten hazard of its rise or in they come to the contact with combustible material, liquid waste and other waste that become explosive after mixture with combustible materials, organic peroxide - waste that are combustible even if they are not in contact with combustible materials. Evaluation is provided according to single results of rated tests.

H3-A High combustibility

This characteristic have the waste in the form of liquid with the point of outburst smaller then 21 ° C, solid waste or liquids that are separately inflame during short time after they come to contact with air of indoor temperature about 20°C without delivery of outer energy. This characteristic have the waste in form of pressed or liquid gases that are combustible o­n air behind atmospheric pressure, solid waste that it is possible easy set o­n fire of short-term contact with inflammation source and that have after remove further burning flame or glow, solid waste or liquids that during the contact with water or water humidity liberate highly combustible gases in dangerous quantity. Evaluation is provided according to single results of rated tests.

H3-B Combustibility

This dangerousness charcteristic have the waste in form of liquids with the point of outburst bigger or equal with 21°C and smaller or equal with 55°C. Evaluation is provided according to single results of rated tests.

H4 Poignancy

This characteristic have the waste that contain riot control agent and preparations and they are not caustic and during short term, extension or reapeted contact with skin or mucous membrane they can invoke its passion. Evaluation is provided according to single results of rated tests.

H5 Health harmful

This character have the waste that contain unhealthy matters and preparations and they can cause light damage health after breath, use or pervasion throught skin.

Evaluation is provided according to single results of rated tests.

H6 Toxicity

This characteristic have the waste that contain toxicity matters or preparations including toxic matters and preparations and whose breath, use or pervasion throught skin can lead to important, urgent or chronical damage health perhaps even deaths. Evaluation is provided according to single results of rated tests.

H7 Carcinogenity

This characteristic have the waste that contain carcinogenic ,matters or preparations and they can after breath, use or pervasion throught skin lead to desease of cancer or raise percent occurrence of cancer. Evaluation is provided according to single results of rated tests.

H8 Causticity

This characteristic have the waste that contain caustic matters or preparations and they can at short term,extension or repeated contact with skin or mucous membrane invoke its damage.

Evaluation is provided according to single results of rated tests.

H9 Infectivity

Like a waste with hazardous quality of infectivity is evaluation waste that contain vital microorganism or their toxin and other infectious agents with

sufficient virulence in concentration or quantity about them are general knowledge or reliably presuming that implicate disease of human or other living organism. Evaluation is provided according to single results of rated tests.

H10 Toxicity for reproduction

This characteristic have the waste that contain matters or preparations toxic for reproduction that can invoke or raise percent occurrence appearence no life inherity malformation or functional damage after breath, use or pervasion throught skin. Evaluation is provided according to single results of rated tests.

H11 Mutagenity

This chracteristic have the waste that contain mutagenic matters or preparations and after breath, use or pervasion throught skin can invoke rise or advance probability inheritable genetic mistakes occurrence. Evaluation is provided according to single results of rated tests.

H12 Ability to slack highly toxic nad toxic gases involved with water or acids

This characteristic have the waste that slack more than 1litre or kg/hour highly toxic or toxic gases involved with water or acids or air. Evaluation is provided according to single results of rated tests.

H13 Ability to slack hazardous matters into the environment at or also after their remove

This chracteristic have the waste that can any way slack or lead to or after its remove to rise harmfull matters that have a negative impact o­n environment and public health. Like a hazardous waste with this dangerous chracteristic is evaluate waste that releases pollutants in quantity transcending values of limit concentration in leach to the aqueous leach rated in appropriate tables or includes choice pollutants in quantity transcending limit concentrations assesment in appropriate table of law. And further the waste that slack pollutants into the any parts of environment transcending limits assesment by special law regulations. Evaluation is provided according to single results of rated tests.

H14 Ecotoxicity

This dangerous characteristic have the waste that represent or can represent urgent or belated danger to o­ne or more parts of environment. Like hazardous waste we evaluate that o­ne whose aqueous leach analyse in tests of urgent toxicity at least for o­ne of testing organism sense organism at determination operating time of tested waste. Evaluation is provided according to single results of rated tests.
