Integrated Device for Leaching Extraction and Assessment

The invention is a device which permits the direct quantification of leachable organic constituents from within solid materials. It is expected that the device will be used in landfills and in other environments where measurements are central to the evaluation of the environmental compatibility of solid materials (e.g., sediments, soils, solidified waste forms) containing organic constituents that have the potential to degrade water resources of to be taken up by biota and the food chain. The invention is designed to simplify current difficulties in assessing leaching of organic constituents with low aqueous solubility.
