Soil analysis

Our method

The analyses we perform on soils as part of surveys to assess contaminated sites – be them intended for residential, public, or private green use (table 1, column A) or commercial/industrial use (table 1, column B) – assume a primary role as they affect upcoming reclamation works and the potential disposal of soil if it is found to be contaminated.

Marino deploys technicians during sampling and measurement processes to ensure the samples to be analysed are well represented and that the quality, accuracy, and timeliness of analytical processes are guaranteed at our lab. The contaminants ascertained are those provided for by Legislative Decree No. 152/06 and subsequent amendments, as shown below:

compounds derived from anilines, nitrobenzenes, nitronaphthalenes, nitrophenols, chloronitroanilines, etc.

aroma, halogenated, nitrogen-containing, various solvents, etc.

cadmium, cobalt, chromium, copper, manganese, nickel, lead, and zinc
