For industries that must comply with governmental waste disposal regulations, there is a lot to lose when it comes to classifying, handling, and disposing of waste. Relying on bad information can lead to hefty financial penalties and even a shutdown of operations. Quick, accurate, and dependable TCLP testing by a certified environmental lab services provider is essential to stay compliant and avoid fines and even more serious penalties.
What is TCLP testing?
TCLP is shorthand for toxicity characteristic leaching procedure, a method of testing a sample of extraction in a way that replicates leaching to determine whether a waste sample is harmful. It is a useful testing procedure for many industries, including manufacturing, engineering, agriculture, and other businesses affected by the extensive federal, state and local regulations.
Toxicity characteristic leaching procedure is one of the most-recognized methods of characterizing waste, in part because it complies with the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The RCRA standardizes hazardous and solid waste disposal in accordance with the Environmental Protection Agency.
TCLP analysis is a multi-step process. It involves separating liquid wastes before reducing particle size and extracting solid materials. The resulting sample is then analyzed for specific metals and 32 organic compounds.
