The legal and bureaucratic complexity of waste management (from the sampling plan to legally conclusive analytical results related to waste classification and its final destination and/or recovery) requires the support of a skilled and experienced supplier in the field.
Criminal liability faced by waste managers and holders and the multiple checks performed by authorities involve the preparation of an adequate analytical profile with the essential information provided by the holder/producer as well as the complete and precise description of the production cycle, the raw materials used and their safety data sheets, as well as the issues related to security. For a deepen analysis of waste, Mérieux NutriSciences offers training sessions and seminars/conferences, depending on the specific need. Mérieux NutriSciences also offers chemical and microbiological sampling and analysis services of the environmental matrices established by Italian Legislative Decree no. 36 dd. Jan. 13, 2003 on the Surveillance and Control Plan of landfills: it envisages that sampling and analysis must be performed by possibly independent, competent laboratories, according to the official methods.
