Abstract
The report represents a multidisciplinary effort to establish a data base for evaluation of the toxicity of extracts from solid wastes representative of various industries. Seventeen solid wastes and an arsenic-contaminated groundwater were studied. The solid waste samples were subjected to the extraction procedure proposed in the Federal Register on December 18, 1978 (43 FR 58956), and the resulting extracts were characterized. Analytical chemical methodologies were evaluated to determine their suitability for the use in analysis of the waste extracts, and procedures were established for preparing organic concentrates from the extracts. Screening assays for toxicity to aquatic organisms and terrestrial plants were evaluated for use in characterization of waste extracts. Short term in vitro mutagenicity bioassays were evaluated and applied to testing the waste extracts.
