Rapid, Reliable and Accurate Identification of hydrocarbons in waste soil

From April 2018, incorrectly classifying hazardous waste soil as non hazardous will lead to substantial fines and prosecution for all parties involved. Conventional laboratory methods for TPH are unreliable for differentiating between coal tar and bitumen, degraded diesel and heavy fuel oil, biodiesel and petroleum fuels. The latest on site methods provide accurate hydrocarbon identification and quantification allowing correct classification of the waste in real time, avoiding problems with HMRC.
