Fitz Scientific hold a comprehensive range of soil and solid waste testing methods, meeting ISO and other international standards. Waste Acceptance Criteria (WAC) analysis involves testing the solid sample for contamination and pollutants before disposal in landfills. Water is passed through the material to form a leachate. The leachate is then analysed for the various harmful elements. A certificate of analysis is produced detailing all of the results. The results are compared to established limits and the material is classed as inert, stable non-reactive or hazardous. Parameters which exceed limits are highlighted for ease of identification.
