National Waste Management Plan

About 30% of the residuals do not qualify as by-products: these are the waste materials. Waste materials resulting from dinking water production are subject to a landfill ban; they have to find useful applications. Only high-arsenical residual streams can be granted an exemption and used in landfill. AquaMinerals makes sure that the waste materials find good destinations, for example, as construction material in infrastructural works or as an input in the fabrication of construction materials. In our operations we’re guided by the underlying principles of the National Waste Management Plan 2 (LAP2) for drinking water production residuals (sectoral plan 17).
