Nesigurnost uzorkovanja - Nordtest prurucnik za planiranje uzorkovanja vezano za obezbeenje kvaliteta uzorkovanja i procenu nesigurnosti (NT TR 604 - Serbian)

NT TR 604 - Serbian

  • The handbook provides practical guidance on sampling uncertainty estimation in the Nordtest TR handbook format. The handbook is an extract of and based upon the principles, methods and text of the international Eurachem Guide Estimation of measurement uncertainty arising from sampling. The Eurachem guide is more extensive and provides details on theory and additional examples. The basic reference for the text in this handbook is the above-mentioned Eurachem guide.

Models for impact evaluation on landfill - Aspects for appropriate modelling (NT TR 601)

NT TR 601

  • The aim of the project is to present information on tools and models suitable for the prediction of the leaching of compounds from waste and the transport of leached compounds to the environment. The focus of the report is mainly on the leaching of inorganic compounds from inorganic non-hazardous waste material.

Harmonized methods for assessment of release of dangerous substances from construction products - Nordic status (NT TR 598)

NT TR 598

  • This project was developed in the context of the new standardisation work under CEN related to the third essential requirement (ER3) concerning Hygiene, Health and the Environment stipulated by the Construction Products Directive (CPD). The project aims particularly to evaluate the importance of harmonising test methods for regulated substances in the Nordic countries and also to address the Nordic interest for CE-labelling of construction products.

Developments of a framework of organic leaching tests for environmental impact assessments (NT TR 585)

NT TR 585

  • The main objective of this project was to develop a guidance document on selecting appropriate leaching methods for evaluating the leaching properties for non-volatile organic compounds from waste and contaminated soil and on interpreting leaching test results for impact assessment.

Quality control manual for field measurements (NT TR 581)

NT TR 581

  • The present manual provides an introduction to the concepts and calculations of analytical quality control, a set of quality requirements for field measurements for different purpose and intended use of the measurements, a selection of quality control methods selected to be of practical use and supply the quality information required in site investigations and a set of examples demonstrating the practical use of the manual.

Method for determining the composition of airborne particle pollution (NT TR 544)

NT TR 544

  • The objective of the project was to develop a method or measuring process to determine the composition of airborne particulate matter. For this purpose, both physical and chemical analysis were performed and multivariate calculations used to identify or simulate the mass fractions of each source material in real samples of particulate matter.

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.

Development of tests for characterising the leaching of organic compounds from contaminated soils and waste products (NT TR 464)

NT TR 464

  • The main purpose of this project has been to evaluate primarily the technical feasibility of applying and standardising leaching tests that may be used to describe the leaching of organic components from contaminated soil and waste materials.

Determination of total or partial trace element content in soil and inorganic waste materials (NT TR 446)

NT TR 446

  • A large number of different methods are available for the determination of the content of trace elements in soil and inorganic waste materials, and since these methods often are used at random and without proper justification, guidance and documentation, a considerable confusion exists in this area.
