Waste Analysis

  • Declaration analysis for reuse and recycling

  • Waste classification for waste disposal

  • Monitoring of dust and ashes from waste incineration processes

Improving recycling methods and ensuring the safety of available resources are crucial steps towards sustaining our environment. We provide you with efficient methods and technologies for a standard compliant declaration analysis of various sample types along the waste recovery cycle  such as construction waste, sludges, chemicals, metals, and many more. Determination parameters include TOC/DOC, AOX/EOX as well as elemental analysis of heavy metals, chlorine, or sulfur. 

What our customers say

Precise devices, excellent service

"As a waste disposal company, we have been using a multi EA 4000 for TOC determination in solids and a multi N/C 3100 for DOC analysis in eluates and wastewater samples for more than seven years. Both parameters are listed in the Landfill Ordinance for waste analysis in a legally binding manner with associated reference values. We were convinced by the measuring accuracy of the instruments, but above all by the excellent application consulting during the purchase and the very reliable, fast and friendly technical support and service.

With Analytik Jena, we have a partner we can rely on. "

Exclusive web seminar recording: Elemental Analysis in Waste and Recycling

The quantities of waste produced worldwide are continuously increasing due to the rising population and economic growth. Forecasts predict that around 2.5 billion tons of waste will be generated in 2030. In highly industrialized countries, about 50% of the waste generated is construction and demolition waste, followed by industrial, commercial and mining waste, household waste and waste from waste treatment plants. Therefore, the issues of waste prevention, waste recycling, and environmentally sound disposal are becoming more and more important. In order to properly recycle or dispose of waste, waste analysis is an important fundamental requirement. Waste analysis is focused on toxic and eco-toxic components, such as heavy metals, halogenated organic compounds, which can be addressed via the sum parameters AOX/EOX, or total organic carbon (TOC and DOC). This web seminar about the elemental analysis of soils, waste, and eluates addresses existing regulations and standards for heavy metal analysis. Suitable methods are presented for the challenges of sample preparation and analysis of various waste types using AAS, ICP-OES, and ICP-MS techniques.

Due to continuously rising quantities of produced waste worldwide, waste prevention, waste recycling, and environmentally sound disposal are becoming increasingly important. In order to properly recycle or dispose of waste, waste analysis is an essential requirement. Besides heavy metals, waste is analyzed for other toxic and ecotoxic components, such as the sum parameter of halogenated organic compounds. 
Depending on the type of waste and valid regional legislation, the total chlorine content (TX/TOX) is monitored, for example, for used oils, solvents, and also plastic waste, both for raw material recycling and thermal recycling. For sewage sludge and mineral waste (excavated soil, demolition material, industrial waste...), the content of adsorbable (AOX) or extractable organic halogen compounds (EOX) is analyzed directly from the solid or from aqueous eluates.

Due to continuously rising quantities of produced waste worldwide, waste prevention, waste recycling, and environmentally sound disposal are becoming increasingly important. In order to properly recycle or dispose of waste, waste analysis is an essential requirement. Besides heavy metals and further toxic and eco-toxic components, waste analysis also focuses on total organic carbon content (TOC and DOC). 

This web seminar addresses existing regulations and standards for direct solids TOC analysis and DOC determination from waste eluates and landfill leachates. Suitable methods and solutions are presented for the highly automated analysis of inhomogeneous sample types and difficult sample matrices by our multi N/C and multi EA 4000 product range.

Exclusive web seminar recording: Elemental Analysis of Sewage Sludge (German)

Municipal sewage sludges have considerable resource potential. For example, phosphorus recovery from sewage sludge of 20 g/kg dry matter or more is also required by law under the German Sewage Sludge Ordinance (from 2029). In addition, strict, European-standardized pollutant limits must be complied with for the utilization of sewage sludge for fertilizer purposes on agricultural soils. 

This web seminar presents the practical implementation of the determination of various parameters in sewage sludge using the ICP-MS PlasmaQuant MS and the ICP-OES PlasmaQuant 9100 after prior microwave pressure digestion.
