German Chemical Industry Association Publishes Guidance on Safe Recovery and Disposal of Wastes Containing Nanomaterials

On August 1, 2019, the German Chemical Industry Association (VCI) announced the availability of a guidance document on the safe recovery and disposal of wastes containing nanomaterials. See https://www.vci.de/vci-online/themen/chemikaliensicherheit/nanomaterialien/2012-02-09-sichere-entsorgung-von-abfaellen-die-nanomaterialien-enthalten-vci.jsp According to VCI, wastes containing nanomaterials can be generated in the production or use of nanomaterials. Such wastes can occur in the production of substances, mixtures, or products; in the processing and repair of products; or in the disposal of products at the end of their life cycle. The guidance document addresses the following topics:

- Legal framework;
- Conclusions from regulatory requirements; and
- Safe recovery or disposal of wastes containing nanomaterials:
-- Waste recovery or disposal;
-- Gathering information about hazardous properties of substances regarding the waste status;
-- Communication along the supply chain; and
-- Determining the hazardousness of waste.
