Abstract

In the project "Secondary products in earth construction - assessment of applicability" guidance was developed for the assessment of the environmental and technical applicability of secondary products for use in earth and road construction.The project was a part of the Finnish Environmental Geotechnology Programme.The preparation of the guidance was a collaboration involving several research institutes.The guidance presents the legislative requirements for the utilisation of secondary products in earthworks, recommendations for the investigation of environmental and technical applicability, recommendations for environmental and technical criteria of the utilisation in earthworks and recommendations for product quality control procedures.A tiered system is presented for the assessment of environmental compliance.The assessment levels are 1) Concentrations of harmful components, 2) Leaching of harmful components from unpaved and paved constructions, 3) Risk assessment.
