Abstract:
In the framework of the Standards, Measurement & Testing Programme (DGXII) of the European Community, a Network for the Harmonisation of Leaching/Extraction Tests has been established. The background for starting this network has been the increased use of widely different leaching test methods in different areas: waste treatment and disposal, incineration of waste, burning of waste fuels, soil clean-up and reuse of cleaned soil, sludge treatment, use of compostfrom different sources and use of alternative raw materials in construction.
