Use of lysimeters for characterisation of leaching from soil and mainly inorganic waste materials (NT TR 473)

NT TR 473

  • The understanding and interpretation of leaching processes have improved significantly during the past two decades and several Nordic countries have implemented the use of leaching tests in recent or pending legislation on utilisation and landfilling of waste and contaminated soil. This progress is based mainly on experience from laboratory experiments in combination with modelling work but also on the use of field lysimeters.
