Abstract

Whole Effluent Assessment (WEA) uses a combination of biological tests and chemical analyses to demonstrate whether there are substances hazardous to the environment in an effluent, i.e. substances that are persistent, liable to bioaccumulate and toxic. This guidance document describes under what circumstances WEA gives added value compared to a substance by substance analysis. In particular this is true for the evaluation of whether treatment of complex wastewaters is adequate, and how a wastewater composition may be improved by process development, substitution of raw materials, etc. This evaluation is part of many permit applications, for instance. An important additional application is to verify the results of measures taken in an industrial wastewater treatment plant. The document gives an overview of WEA methods, with brief accounts of standard methods in particular, but also of advanced methods under development that have not yet reached standard status. For full protocols the appropriate standards must be consulted. The results are evaluated in a risk assessment that demonstrates whether a discharge is acceptable or if there is a risk for damage on the biota of the recipient water. The testing is performed in a stepwise mode, starting with relatively simple and quick tests, which may  More>>
