Abstract Battelle Columbus Laboratories conducted this research program to develop a method for assessing potential mobility of organic compounds from a waste codisposed in a municipal landfill. Inorganic constituents were monitored to provide a basis for comparison with previous research in the field using distilled water, 0.5 N acetic acid titration (extraction procedure-EP), and other leaching media. A literature survey and contacts with key scientists served as the basis for assessing state-of-the-art leachate research. A quality assurance study to assess the precision and accuracy of analytical methods to be used to evaluate the leachates and wastes was conducted prior to initiation of leachate research. An interlaboratory comparison study of potential mobility procedure developed by Battelle and the total content method developed by Southern Research Institute (SoRI) was performed jointly by both laboratories. The ink pigment and still bottoms wastes were used for the interlaboratory comparison of the methods. The advantages and disadvantages of the various analytical methods used throughout the program to determine metals and organics are discussed in detail. It was concluded that the leaching procedure and analytical methods used meet all of the original objectives of the program including feasibility of implementation at a cost of under $1850 per sample.
