Hazardous Waste Management in EU Member States


Europäische Kommission



Support to Member States in improving hazardous waste management based on assessment of Member States' performance

Planning, classification, labelling, record keeping, collection and treatment – managing hazardous waste is firmly regulated by the EU. A consortium led by BIPRO is analysing Member States’ performance in its now second project for DG Environment. Prognos takes part as statistical expert. Based on an overall  performance analysis, in-depth country specific analyses are carried out for selected countries to identify challenges and best practises as a basis for the recommendations. In the second project the researchers focus their analysis on the waste management of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).
