Recovery test of pure concrete or pure brick (843/2017) (does not include determination of material distribution)

The Finnish Government Decree on the Recovery of Certain Wastes in Earth Construction (843/2017) specifies the conditions under which the use of certain waste materials in earth construction does not require an environmental permit by the Environmental Protection Act (527/2014). This requires a specific set of analyses to be performed. Our recovery testing of pure concrete or brick includes the following set of analyses: • Sample crushing to 4 mm • Dry matter (%) • Leaching test (EN 12457-3:2002) • Soluble metals (As, Ba, Cd, Cr, Cu, Hg, Mo, Ni, V, Pb, Sb, Se, Zn) (mg/kg) • PAH compounds (mg / kg) • PCB compounds (mg/kg) • Mineral oil, C10-C40 (mg/kg) • Chloride, Cl (mg /kg) • Fluoride, F (mg/kg) • Sulphate, SO4 (mg/kg) • Dissolved organic carbon, DOC (mg/kg)
