The State Office for Environmental Protection Saxony-Anhalt commissioned INTECUS to prepare a study on the "Relevance of new persistent organic pollutants in waste and their effects on waste classification and disposal methods in Saxony-Anhalt". In the course of the investigation, waste streams were analyzed with regard to the content of short-chain chlorinated paraffins (SCCP), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), perfluorooctanesulfonic acid and its derivatives (PFOS) and hexachlorobutadiene (HCBD). The results were evaluated and the disposal paths used were evaluated for their suitability.
