Abstract [en]

The thesis addresses the issue of when a bankruptcy estate, under environmental law, is responsible for the debtor’s environmentally hazardous activities. A fundamental principle of insolvency law is that the bankruptcy estate is not responsible for the debtor’s prior obligations. The environmental legal rules do not distinguish whether an injunction liability is directed against a bankruptcy estate or another operator. Therefor disputes often occur whether the bankruptcy estate is liable in these cases. During the autumn of 2013 two new cases regarding mining operations in bankruptcy shed light on the question concerning bankruptcy estate´s environmental liability. The new cases raised concern that it had been a change in the existing legal situation.
