INDUSTRIALLY POLLUTED SOILS (COKING PLANT SOILS)

Objective



Industrial wastes are causing considerable difficulties in industrialized countries. Secret waste deposits are even of greater concern because there are many thousands of them. Reclamation of polluted areas requires considerable expenditure as well as the disposal or destruction of the wastes. In view of the problem of elimination of dangerous waste various Directives have already been adopted (e.g. 78/319/EEC, 75/442/EEC or 87/216/EEC), which deal with precautions to be taken in removal, treatment and transport of wastes. Only in NL there are more than 1600 identified sites to be treated; this is expected to be less than 10 % of all sites still uncovered. The accurate characterisation of waste has therefore considerable economic consequences.

This project envisages to study the analytical problems for soils polluted by coking plants (tar, oil, PAH, phenols, cyanides)

STATUS

Two soil materials are in preparation for the certification of PAH, phenols and CN.
