Aluminium losses are defined as 'All metallic aluminium that is disposedafter use by consumers or producers and is not reused or recycled'. The described protocol is an improvement over the previous monitoring protocol 'Aluminium Lekverliezen', published April 1996. With this new protocol the results of the monitoring will be more consistent throughout the years and more acceptable for the parties involved. The protocol consists of guidelines to determine the 'aluminium losses': definition of 'aluminium losses' (which losses are included and which not), description of relevant waste streams, a description of relevant ways of waste removal, a description of calculation methods for each waste stream, the information resources available (literature, organisations, contacts), and an indication of the quality of the available data. The monitoring results for the years 1994, 1996, and 1998 are presented in a separate report 'Aluminium lekverliezen'. 30 refs.
