Abstract

The objective of this study is to clarify the elution characteristics of heavy metals into scrubber residue solution such as bound water and pore water. The L/S ratio of wet scrubber residue is smaller than that the L/S ratios used in elution tests such as: the one based on Notification No. 13 of the Japanese Environment Agency (Japanese official method, JLT13), the Toxicity Characteristics Leaching Procedure (U.S.A. official method) and the Availability test (Dutch official method). A centrifugation method employed to sample soil solution was adopted for use to sample two types of scrubber residue solutions, and to compare the concentrations of heavy metals in the leachates with that obtained from the JLT13 and the Availability test as well as the pH dependency test.
