PP1 and PP2: Old deposits (Johann Friz)
Within the horizontal project part „alternative monitoring methods“ a set of biotests will be applied to waste samples. It is the goal to evaluate the applicability of ecotoxicity tests and the validity of the results for description of material hazard. Terrestrial and aquatic biotests are used. Samples are solid waste, aqueous eluates (DIN S4) obtained from them.
At the beginning (analysis of the first obtained samples) seven biotests have been selected. During the course of the project the three most appropriate tests will be identified and validated. It is known that the high salt load of some waste samples could interfere with the toxicity response of most test organisms. Contents with fertilising properties, such as Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potassium, will change the growth of plants and algae in the biotests, maybe covering reduced growth caused by toxic contents. Therefore it is an important part of the investigations to describe such influences and to give advice for recognising or circumventing them.
The working program includes status analysis as well as control analysis of samples deriving from different treatment or reactor experiments.
