Organochlorine Waste Management

Roger Papp
(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.
