AUDITECO was retained by a Client, an environmental multinational from Germany, to perform an investigation of potential locations for hazardous waste landfills for an oil and gas company in Romania. The methodology for identifying the most suitable locations for building hazardous waste landfills consisted of desktop studies relying on available maps, site visits to pre-selected sites, hydrogeological investigation in order to determine the environmental setting and sensitivity of the site, geotechnical investigations etc.
The evaluation of the proposed sites was made based on rigorous and well-established criteria including land use, geomorphology, distance to housing, distance to protected areas etc.
The site selection took into consideration all the relevant Romanian applicable legislation on building of hazardous waste landfills.
