Dirt-moisture adhering to the waste: sampling and percentage determination

We carry out the taking of representative samples of waste in order to know the amount of dirt-moisture that is adhered to them.

This is a procedure applicable to waste samples that is used to determine the content of dirt-moisture adhered to them. With this, our clients can estimate the amount of real material available and optimize waste management.

The determination of dirt-moisture can be applied to waste samples of different nature. In general, the materials on which we conducted this study are the following:

Printed paper

Domestic paper/cardboard packaging

Commercial paper/cardboard packaging




Commercial/industrial film

Commercial/industrial plastics

Other plastic containers

Non-packaging plastics







If necessary, the study can be carried out on other additional materials.

At Eurocontrol we have our own laboratory to carry out this type of test, which we have been carrying out since 2014.

Asbestos - inspection analysis and measurements
Asbestos is a major public and occupational health problem: this multi-talented material, massively used until it was banned, has proven to be highly toxic. Legislative requirements are changing, with the recent addition of the obligation for municipalities to carry out a census of asbestos installations and sites and to draw up a plan for its removal, for example. Training requirements have also been established to ensure the safety of workers handling asbestos.
