Whatman TCLP test filters are acid-treated with low metal content. They support TCLP testing by providing accurate information about TCLP limits to ensure the best possible disposal plan can be put into action.
Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) is designed to predict the toxicity of hazardous waste. Industrial waste must comply with established TCLP limits to ensure that hazardous contaminants, known as landfill leachate, do not migrate into groundwater and threaten local drinking water sources.
By accurately characterizing the degree of contamination, material can be disposed of as safely and economically as possible.
To dispose of hazardous waste in a United States municipal landfill, TCLP limits must fall within standard levels set for maximum contamination levels (MCLs). If MCLs are exceeded, the producer must dispose of the materials at a specialized hazardous waste facility, which increases costs significantly.
Acid-treated, low metal Whatman TCLP test filters can help to determine what steps, if any, must be taken to mitigate landfill leachate risk.
