Chemical analysis as a key factor for correct waste hazard classification

Wednesday September 20, 2017 14:42

Waste hazard classification is an important step in complete waste management cycle. Incorrect waste hazard classification can give a lot of administrative burden and even form a negative public perception. The ECN ClassifyMyWaste™ application lists the elements whose total content is essential  to obtain a reliable conclusion on waste hazard properties.

From a high number of views and users of the ECN ClassifyMyWaste™ tool, there is an indication that the unknown content of relevant elements becomes a bottleneck in waste hazard classification and blocks a possibility to arrive at a final conclusion. 

To avoid this, check the Classification page for the list of required elements and contact us to get a non-binding offer for chemical analysis of your waste! For a reasonable price, next to consultancy on waste hazard classification, we offer you measurements of total content for all the elements needed  for the ECN ClassifyMyWaste™ tool. The precise chemical analysis is a key factor to have your waste hazard properties assessed correctly!

In particular, we offer:

  • ICP-MS analysis to determine total contents of metals in waste
  • Ion chromatography for determination of Cl, Br, SO4 and ion chromatography with photometric detection for Cr(VI) measurements
  • Flow injection analysis to determine the F content
  • Leaching tests (EN 14429, EN 14997) to determine mobility of contaminants and an advice how to immobilize contaminants
  • Advice how to assess hazard properties of your waste not yet addressed in ECN ClassifyMyWaste™
