Dutch term or phrase: gelijkaardige technieken
Topic: Explosive Chamber

Indien dergelijke technieken, in vergelijking met alle gelijkaardige technieken, beter scoren op veiligheid en milieugebied...

Isn´t this a typo? Shouldn´t it be gelijkwaardig i.e. equivalent?

Thanks a million.

Explanation:
equivalent means indeed 'gelijkwaardig'.

But 'gelijkaardig' is also correct and means 'similar'. So it is not a typo...
