CARO’s TCLP Capabilities Doubled

Posted on July 31, 2015

Many of our clients routinely require TCLP analysis.  The time consuming nature of the analysis typically limits a lab’s capacity to handle many samples on a rush basis.  To ensure that we have ample capacity for any projects that require timely TCLP analysis, we have more than doubled our TCLP analysis capacity.  Here is a fun video of our TCLP Rotators.TCLP Rotator

Many regulatory jurisdictions such as BC’s Hazardous Waste Regulation (HWR) stipulates the use of the Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) to determine the mobility of a specified list (Table 1 of HWR) of organic and inorganic contaminants (metals, pesticides, herbicides, solvents) in liquid, solid, and multiphasic wastes. TCLP simulates leaching of contaminants in environment over time. Before waste may be deposited in designated landfills it must be tested by TCLP.  TCLP tested via EPA Method 1311.

For any routine and rush soil and water analysis projects, CARO has ample capacity to accommodate your project needs and ensure that you get data on the timeline that you require.  We also continue to make great strides in developing analytical testing services in contaminated sites and emergent pollutants to support our growing client’s needs.  To find out more, please see our scope of accreditation here:( or contact us here to discuss your analytical projects (  Thank you for your continued support.
