The project has resulted in a proposal for a test protocol for a batch leaching test applicable to soil, based on an experimentally based study of the influence of various test conditions on the performance and results of the test.
In the Nordic countries there is an increasing interest in the use of leaching-based criteria in the regulation of utilisation and landfilling of waste materials and contaminated soil. The project has resulted in a proposal for a test protocol for a batch leaching test applicable to soil.
