Abstract

Rapid, accurate on site determination of arsenic and heavy metal levels in soil is a powerful tool in efforts to rebuild and revitalize abandoned and under-utilized industrial properties.

The EPA is actively spearheading initiatives to encourage assessment, clean-up and re-use of these industrial properties. In the case of heavy metals (often the eight RCRA metals Pb, As, Cd, Cr, Hg, Ag, Ba, Se), the technology of choice is field portable x-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis. NITON’s field portable XRF offers a number of advantages for expediting site characterization and cleanup.
