In ecological and waste disposal terms, inert waste is defined as waste that does not undergo any significant physical, chemical or biological changes. Inert waste does not disintegrate, is not combustible and does not biodegrade. They do not affect other materials with which they come into contact in a manner that could cause environmental contamination or adversely affect human health. They have low leachability and the pollutant content and ecotoxicity of the leakage water is insignificant (according to Directive 31/1999/EC).
Examples of inert waste:
Ash from the incineration of refuse (under certain conditions and following testing of leachability),
and vitreous waste.
