Chemical analyses

Nemko Norlab conducts a wide range of chemical analyses related to environmental investigations and quality control of raw materials and products. From well-equipped, modern laboratories, we deliver inorganic and organic analyses for industrial customers and research organizations. We also provide customized testing.

Nemko Norlab delivers customised outsourced laboratory solutions to a number of industrial companies.


Nemko Norlab conducts  required tests for  disposal of waste.  Waste must be correctly characterized ensure that the disposal is done properly and according to regulatory requirements.

We conduct analyses of discharge material and offer leachate testing according to the Norwegian Waste Regulations. Landfill requirements largely depend on the leachate properties of the waste, and must therefore be determined.

Analyses according to Chapter 9 of the Norwegian Waste Regulations, Appendix 2

Source (in Norwegian):

Analysis of discharge materials:

  • organic toxins (BTEX, mineral oil (C10-C40), PAH, PCB)
  • metals (As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Hg, Ni, Pb, Zn)
  • TOC (total organic carbon)

Leaching test (NS-EN 12457) and up-flow perculation test (NS-EN 14405) with analysis of eluate:

  • pH
  • conductivity
  • DOC (dissolved organic carbon)
  • anions (F, Cl, SO42-)
  • metals (As, Ba, Cd, Cr, Cu, Hg, Mo, Ni, Pb, Sb, Se, Zn)

We can also offer extended reporting, including assessment of the results compared to the threshold values given for the various landfill categories.
