A comparison of three leaching tests was performed with thirteen industrial wastes to evaluate the potential of each test for use as a standard leaching test procedure. Such a procedure would be used to assess the leaching characteristics of industrial wastes for land disposal. The study was done in conjunction with a background study on the development of a standard leaching test. The advantages and disadvantages of each test based on the leaching characteristics of the thirteen wastes and the usefulness of each procedure as a standard test are analyzed and compared. Finally, comments are provided on the need for careful interpretation of test results.
