Abstract

If an aggregate achieves End-of-Waste (EoW) status, it will become a (construction) product and hence regulated by the Construction Products Regulation, which means that in most EU member states there will be no applicable environmental protection regulation. The EoW criteria must therefore ensure sufficient protection of the environment and human health. EoW criteria without restrictions and conditions on the use must necessarily include very stringent leaching limit values. It is proposed to include restrictions and conditions on the use in EoW criteria, an a step-wise methodology for the development of leaching limit values for EoW is outlined.
