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.

CEN EN 12457 leaching test - Comparison of test results obtained by part 1 and 2 with test results obtained by part 3 (NT TR 539)

NT TR 539

  • The report compares leaching results obtained by two one-step batch leaching tests (en 12457 part 1 and 2) with leaching results obtained by a two-steps batch-leaching test (EN 12457 part 3). The effect of the used contact time and the effect of using different number of leaching steps were 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.

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.
