TCLP Testing – Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure Analysis

Avomeen’s chemists can run TCLP analysis or toxicity characteristic leaching procedure testing for our clients. This analysis determines the leachability, and characterizes hazardous waste. This analysis can determine the mobility of both inorganic and organic analytes. These analytes can be tested for their presence in liquid, solid, and multiphasic wastes.

This type of testing is usually performed at the recommendation of the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) to determine the safety of these materials and what level of storage or cleanup is required for them. Through a simulation of landfill situations, this type of testing allows one to show potential risks of contaminants or hazardous waste located within a sample that might cause to the environment. This type of testing is often down under RCRA (40 CFR Part 261) of D004 through D052 to determine if a waste falls under the definition of EP Toxicity.

What materials are considered hazardous?
• Toxic “7-11 test”
• Reactive “Unstable, reacts to water, prone to violent changes”
• Ignitable “Flashpoint under 140 degrees Fahrenheit”
• Corrosive “Aqueous levels of pH”
• Pesticides
• Those listed in CFR (List of categorized wastes)
