Soil pollution occurs when the presence of toxic chemicals, heavy metals, pollutants or contaminants in the soil is in high enough concentrations to be of risk to plants, wildlife, humans and of course, the soil itself.
Types of soil contamination typically arise from the rupture of underground storage tanks, percolation of contaminated surface water to subsurface strata, leaching of wastes from landfills or direct discharge of industrial wastes to the soil
ELS, provides dedicated smart solutions for Environmental researchers to monitor, Assess and control, Soil pollution
Typical solutions include:
• Soil and sludge elemental analysis (heavy metals)
• Soil sampling Kit According to USA EPA 5035A for the determination of the presence of very volatile components such as benzene, toluene, xylene and chlorinated hydrocarbons
• Landfill leachate monitoring
