Although the dream of every production, construction and other human activity is that it does not lead to the generation of waste, we are not always able to achieve this goal in real life.
Our services help to ensure that waste management is as rational as possible in terms of ecology and economy and that any negative impacts are minimised.
Waste management is governed by Act No. 541/2020 Sb., as amended and its implementing regulations, in particular Decree No. 273/2021 Sb., on the details of waste management and Decree No. 8/2021 Sb., on the catalogue of waste and the assessment of waste properties.
If necessary, during the transitional period, we will carry out analyses according to the previously valid legislation.
We provide accredited sampling and analyses of waste, consulting in the field of waste management and waste management according to the applicable legislation.
Waste sampling is always specific to the type of waste, the purpose of sampling, the amount of waste, etc. Sampling method is always described in detail in the sampling protocol, which is handed over to the customer together with the test result certificate after the analysis.
The conditions for depositing waste in landfills are given by Annex No. 10. to Decree No. 273/2021 Sb., as amended
According to the waste received, landfills are divided into:
Waste used for backfilling
Excavated soils, sediments and similar inert materials do not need to be disposed of in landfills, but can be used for land consolidation as backfill material.
The conditions for this option of waste management are specified in Annex No. 5 to Decree No. 273/2021 Sb. This Annex lists the limit concentrations of harmful substances in dry matter, in the leachate and the threshold limit values for ecotoxicological tests. The use in the upper layer (within 1 m from the final surface of the ground) is also determined, whereby the requirements are stricter than for other backfill (lower layers).Ecotoxicological tests are carried out on living organisms; it takes about three weeks to analyse the waste according to Annex No. 5.
The following can be used for backfilling:
Slag from the incineration of other waste used for backfilling – the use of slag for backfilling is possible if the limit concentrations of harmful substances in the dry matter and the leachate according to Tables 6.1 and 6.2 of Annex No. 6 and other requirements specified by the Decree are met.
Sludge and soil analyses according to Decree No. 273/2021 Sb. – according to the requirements for the use of treated sludge on agricultural land listed in Annexes No. 28, 37, 38 and 39 to this Decree, the properties of sewage sludge (indicator microorganisms, basic chemical indicators, risk elements and substances) and properties of the soil on which the sludge is to be used (the agrochemical properties of the soil and the content of risk elements) are monitored.
Analyses of biodegradable waste - according to Decree No. 273/2021 Sb..
Lists of biodegradable waste intended for processing in the appropriate facility (composting plants, vermicomposting plants, biogas stations, etc.) are given in Annex No. 25.
We determine the biological stability of organic waste AT4 (respiration activity test, test method for evaluating the stability of biodegradable waste based on measuring 4-day oxygen demand). Biodegradable waste is classified as stabilised if the AT4 value is lower than 10 mg of oxygen per gram of dry matter; in case of higher activity, it is impossible to put it in a landfill.
Determination of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) in substances that contain them (dielectric oil in transformer stations, insulating liquids, service fillings) - the limit value is 50 mg/kg.
Just fill in the simple form and we can get down to business!
