Examination of soil, sediment, sludge quality

In our Laboratory we have developed a number of methods for testing soil quality and we strive for further development of new methods

The Laboratory for the Protection of the Working and Environmental Environment performs sampling, chemical and physical testing of samples:

  • land
  • sediments
  • sludge

In order to determine the zero condition, pollution monitoring, landfill impact monitoring, impact monitoring of industrial and other facilities, etc., for which the Laboratory is accredited by the Accreditation Body of Serbia.

In our Laboratory we have developed a number of methods for testing soil quality and we strive for further development of new methods. In addition to the usual laboratory equipment, we also use microwave plasma – Agilent MP-AES 4100 atomic emission spectrometer, Agilent 7890A / 5975C gas-mass chromatograph (GC / MS), Dionex ICS 1100 ion chromatograph (IC), as well as gas chromatograph with Triplequad mass detector (GC – QQQ) Agilent Technologies 7890B / 7010, duo system of atomic absorption spectrometers with flame technique and graphite cuvette technique (AAS – FA, AAS – GF) Agilent Technologies 280FS AA / 280Z AA and microwave extraction digestion furnace Milestone Ethos Easy.

Soil analysis

By cutting the soil and taking the pedological profile, its physico-chemical and biological properties are revealed, such as texture, structure, granulometric composition, porosity, water permeability and others.

Sediment analysis

Sedimentation measurement involves sampling a mixture of sediment and water to determine the suspended sediment concentration, its specific gravity, the temperature of the mixture, and other physical and chemical properties.

Sludge analysis

We successfully determine the quality of sludge through analysis for heavy metals, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), total organic carbon (TOC), dioxins and furans.

Competent team of experts and modern technology for precise analysis

Our chemical researcher or technician is responsible for sampling in accordance with accredited standard methods. The sample is then preserved, ie stored at low temperatures in the premises of our laboratory. Finally, the analysis process itself follows, the duration of which depends on the number of parameters and their individual microanalysis.

Depending on the determined properties and their coefficients, a clear picture of the possibilities or impossibilities of performing activities on certain areas is obtained. This ensures safety in the workplace, as well as its necessary sustainability in the future.

In our laboratory we have developed a number of methods for testing soil quality and we strive for further development of new methods. We work with the most eminent companies for the production of laboratory instruments such as Milestone Ethos Easy and Agilens Technologies.

The recommended monitoring of soil quality is once a year, during which the sampling and testing process is repeated. The work and training of our team on the most modern equipment for analytical operations guarantees fast and accurate results, and our many years of experience can help you find a solution to every problem.
