The quality control for the reuse of cleaned soil from a contaminated site consisted in the determination of the main contaminants by analytical chemical methods such as GC and HPLC. Since it is not possible to analyze for all contaminants a toxicity test should be used to detect large concentrations of not routinely analyzed chemicals. The aim of the study was to develop a system for toxicity testing, which should be able to predict the toxicity of soil samples based on the concentration of… CONTINUE READING
