The determination of extractable trace metal contents in soils and sediments is currently performed in many laboratories to assess the bioavailable metal fraction and the importance and possibility of mobilisation of trace metals from polluted soil, sludge and sediment upon landfill application. Single and sequential extraction schemes are generally used for the assessment of the different forms of trace metals. The need to establish common schemes for these extractions and for the improvement of the quality of extractable trace metal determinations in soil and sediments has been identified and a project set up by the Community Bureau of Reference (BCR). This paper presents the main conclusions of a workshop organised for the discussion of the results of the research.
