Environment and pollution


Wastewater, soils and sediments to RoHS

For monitoring of contaminated sediments, soils, air and water and classification of materials for recycling, wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) is the non-destructive analytical technique of choice to fulfill the requirements of US EPA requirements for heavy metal concentrations (RCRA metals) and the European Union (EC) environmental regulations of RoHS/WEEE. Rigaku solutions and services for your non-destructive testing are essential for your product “end-of-life" recovery and recycling strategy. .
