ABSTRACT
Dumping areas of dangerous wastes are big threat for environment in particularly at the moment of release dangerous substances in draining form. Migration of those substances in soil causes pollution of water environment. The attention in article was turned on specific kind of wastes – pesticides, which are accumulated during many years in dumping grounds. The majority of those dumping grounds have been catalogued. The gigantic environmental threat is caused by lack of environmental monitoring of polluted areas. Many physical, chemical and biological methods for neutralizing such waste were invented and patented. The most efficient method of liquidate those waste appeared to be thermal degradation. This kind of method is also, presented in this paper, explosive burning of pesticides.
