Event Overview:

Due to the steady rise in global population, the amount of waste produced worldwide is also increasing. In 2016, more than 2 billion tons of waste were produced worldwide. The forecast expects around 2.5 billion tons of waste to be produced in 2030. In addition to waste prevention, the topics of waste recycling and disposal are currently of high relevance. In order to recycle or properly dispose of it, analyzing waste is crucial. The analysis of these samples naturally presents numerous challenges; a variety of techniques can be used to measure trace and minor elements in waste. Depending on the number of elements that need to be determined, the required detection limits, and the number of samples that need to be run, the most suitable business requirement technique can be chosen. In this webinar, analytical techniques and their performance will be discussed using practical examples from various types of waste.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Understand different methods for waste analysis
  • Choose the right technique for specific applications
  • Understand analytical performance criteria for successful waste analysis
