Abstract

The present document describes the results and experiences obtained through the execution of the NORDTEST project entitled ”Development of tests for characterising the leaching of organic compounds from contaminated soils and waste products”.

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.

Other objectives have been to provide data on the leaching of organic compounds from the testing of existing or adjusted leaching tests and, finally, to identify research needs and provide suggestions for future work.
