Waste Tests

Waste Tests

As the human population increases and society takes on a consumption-based form, the amount of waste in all kinds of sectors is increasing extremely rapidly.

Waste Tests

In general, waste tests are carried out for the following purposes:

  • To illuminate the release systems of radioactive and chemical compounds from waste
  • Keeping waste generation under control
  • Ensuring that waste generation results in an acceptable level of waste
  • To provide the information needed to model waste performance in waste disposal systems

Waste tests need to be applied to better understand the breakdown behavior of waste and the release of components.

Waste sources are generally of four types: industrial, commercial, domestic and agricultural waste. Industrial wastes are wastes formed in various sectors in production facilities. Commercial waste is generated in stores, offices and schools. Domestic waste is the waste produced as a result of ordinary daily use in homes.

Agricultural waste, on the other hand, is the waste produced from activities related to raising a crop or animal. In short, waste is an inevitable by-product of human activities. Economic developments and rising living standards cause increases in the amount and complexity of the waste produced. Industrial diversification and the provision of expanded health care services have also led to an increase in industrial hazardous waste and biomedical waste.

Testing and analysis of wastes has also become important in terms of the production, treatment, disposal and management of the increasing waste volume. Determining the contents of the wastes and deciding on the right method for disposal depend on these test results.

In the test, analysis, measurement and evaluation studies carried out in our organization, national and international standards and applicable legal regulations are complied with and reliable and impartial results are obtained. Waste testing services are among the numerous tests carried out in this context.
