Ecotoxicological Analyses of
The environmentally sound disposal or treatment of waste requires extensive analyses of chemical and biological parameters.
These analyses are performed on the original sample and the waste eluate.
Additional biological methods are needed to assess environmental impact.
Aquatic and terrestrial methods are used for biological testing. The findings of biological impact testing can be used to assess the risk of possible recycling scenarios, as well as to classify the waste itself.

The following and other tests can be performed on waste:
- Waste eluate
- Luminescent bacteria test DIN EN ISO 11348-2 (L52)
- Algae test DIN EN ISO 8692 (L9)
- Daphnia test DIN EN ISO 6341 (L40)
- Umu test DIN EN ISO 38415 (T3)
- Earthworm avoidance test DIN ISO 17512-1
- Earthworm test:
- acute toxicity DIN ISO 11268-1
- Bacteria contact test DIN 38412-L48
We will gladly assist you in the subsequent assessment of all findings. A large proportion of the tests can also be performed according to OECD Guidelines, EC Regulation 440/2008, or other DIN EN ISO standards.
