Biodegradability testing of the municipal solid waste reject (NT TR 560)

NT TR 560

  • Sustainable development requires an environmentally sound, cost effective and socially acceptable management of municipal and industrial waste. Landfilling of untreated municipal solid waste (MSW) is known to lead to emissions of leachate and landfill gas, above all methane, which contributes to the greenhouse effect.

Acceptance criteria for landfilling of waste under nordic conditions (NT TR 520)

NT TR 520

  • In the report the various classes and sub-categories of landfills that are possible within the framework of the EU Landfill Directive are presented and discussed, and the need within the Nordic countries for sub-categories of the three main classes of landfills (inert, non-hazardous and hazardous waste landfills) is evaluated.

Tillverkning och användning av laboratoriereferensmaterial vid testing av fast avfall (NT TR 486)

NT TR 486

  • Costly certified and commercial reference materials can often not be applied for waste testing because of high test portion quantities needed and poor availability of suitable commercial soil and waste materials. The utilisation of a laboratory reference material can be regarded as a practical tool in the quality control of leaching test performance.

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.

Undersøgelse af grundlaget for anvendelse af batchudvaskningstesten NT ENVIR 005 i forbindelse med testning af udvaskningen af sporelementer fra jord (NT TR 461a)

NT TR 461a

  • 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.

Undersøgelse af grundlaget for anvendelse af batchudvaskningstesten NT ENVIR 005 i forbindelse med testning af udvaskningen af sporelementer fra jord (NT TR 461)

NT TR 461

  • 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.
