Stabilisation and landfilling

It is essential that the safe disposal of elements from hazardous waste is done without dispersing pollutants so as to protect the environment and public health. Veolia stabilizes these pollutants and stores them in secure dedicated landfills.

Non-recyclable hazardous waste such as fly and bottom ashes have to first be solidified so as to stabilize them, usually through the use of cement. They then can be safely disposed of in secure dedicated landfills.

An on-site laboratory tests samples of stabilized waste in order to ensure lasting stability before it enters the landfill, while upstream and downstream surface water, groundwater and vegetatio is constantly monitored for traces of contamination.

Veolia’s hazardous waste dedicated landfills are highly engineered and managed to meet stringent environmental standards.
