Background values in European soils and sewage sludges, PART II - Contents of trace elements and organic matter in European soils, Results of a JRC-coordinated study on background values

Funded under: FP6-JRC

Abstract

The report is intended as an input for discussion concerning the necessity to regulate organic micro-pollutants in the revision of the European Sludge Directive 86/278/EEC.
In part 2 of this report it was attempted to compile a Europe-wide evaluation of heavy metal and organic matter contents of European top soils. The evaluation programme was accomplished thereby in several steps. In summary, it can be concluded that some progress towards a Europe-wide data harmonisation was achieved, which allows some conclusions for the aforementioned legislative purpose. Problems to be solved include particularly standardisation aspects.
