Analysis of Sewage and Sewage Sludge by ICPE-9000
25 Feb 2014
Sludge is normally incinerated or solidified and then disposed of in landfills or recycled for use in construction materials such as concrete or fertilizer. Therefore, any possible adverse effects to the environment must be monitored by checking the levels of heavy metals in this sludge, and the degree to which they leach into the environment. This application note introduces the quantitative analysis of sludge and sewage waste water using the ICPE-9000 multitype ICP emission spectrometer.
