Summary of the technology

Laboratory for Trace Organic Analyses is an integral part of the Department of Chemical Engineering and Technology at Krakow University of Technology. The Laboratory is accredited from Polish Centre for Accreditation that signed EA Multilateral Agreement. PCA has become a signatory of EA MLA

Description of the technology

Laboratory is accredited in the area of the determination of PCDDs, PCDFs, PCB (Indicator, dioxin-like) and HCB in the Environmental, industrial, food and feedingstuff samples.

The quality system implemented at the laboratory is based on the principles included in the standard: PN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 in relation to research laboratories accreditation. Every year since 1996, the laboratory has been taking part in international inter-laboratory comparisons in determination of dioxins, PCB, HCB and PBDE in ashes, sediments and in other industrial samples. The laboratory manager, Prof. Adam Grochowalski is a member of the European Committee for Standardization for the implementation of standards EN-1948 for the measurements of dioxin emission  in thermal processes and an expert working for UNEP Chemicals in Geneva for creation of documentation: Standardized Toolkit for Identification and Quantification of Dioxin and Furan Releases as well  as BAT/BEP Guidelines within the Stockholm Convention regarding the reduction of emission of persistent organic pollutants in industrial processes, also as a representative of the Ministry of Environment.

The laboratory has gained experience in measurements of combustion gas emission in industrial processes, mainly from cement kilns, power producing facilities, waste incineration plants and metallurgical industry.
