Abstract: The environmentally sound management of hazardous waste is an especially topical issue, closely related to the protection of environment and human health. The choice of Best Available Techniques (BAT) for treatment of hazardous waste lies at the base of circular economy and sustainable development. The aim of this article is to calculate the eco-efficiency of various hazardous waste treatment methods, based on international standard ISO 14045:2012. Proper methods for treatment of hazardous waste can be identified through their ecological efficiency, which is a prerequisite not only for reducing the impact of this group of waste on the environment, but also for their transformation into energy and raw material resources.

Keywords: Eco-Efficiency, Waste Management, Hazardous Waste, Waste Treatment
