Organochlorine Waste Management
(Chairman of the Scientific and Technical Committee of CNEEIC (College
National d'Experts Environnement de l'Industrie Chimique France, and
Professor of Chemical Engineering, Ecole Centrale de Paris, France)
Sound environmental management includes
the proper management of waste. This chapter reviews the basic rules
of good management practice illustrated by some examples from chlorine
derivatives production and gives the main considerations governing the
Best Available Techniques for organochlorine waste thermal treatment.
A review of the main degradation pathways of organochlorines - dispersal,
distribution, degradation pathways, and environmental half-lives - demonstrates
a very large range of characteristics, justifying the need for a separate
study for each substance. Finally, the paper examines the latest developments
in organochlorine contaminated site remediation technology.
