DO YOU KNOW WHAT A BY-PRODUCT IS AND HOW TO DECLARE IT?

The Waste Framework Directive and its transposition into the Spanish regulation, through the Waste and Contaminated Soils Act 22/2011, of 28TH July, introduced the concept of by-product as a substance or object, resulting from a production process, the primary aim of which is not the production of that item, if the following conditions are met simultaneously:

  1. Further use of the substance or object is certain,
  2. The substance or object can be used directly without any further processing other than normal industrial practice;
  3. The substance or object is produced as an integral part of a production process; and
  4. Further use is lawful, i.e. the substance or object fulfils all relevant product, environmental and health protection requirements for the specific use and will not lead to overall adverse environmental or human health impacts.

A decree must establish the consideration of a substance or object as a by-product.

The producer and the company receiving a particular production residue may request its acceptance as a by-product.
