ISO 15009:2002 specifies a method for quantitative gas-chromatographic determination of volatile hydrocarbons, naphthalene and volatile halogenated hydrocarbons in soil.

ISO 15009:2002 is applicable to all types of soil.

Under the conditions specified in ISO 15009:2002, the following limits of determinations apply (expressed on basis of dry matter):

  • volatile hydrocarbons and naphthalene: 0,1 mg/kg;
  • volatile halogenated hydrocarbons: 0,01 mg/kg.

The lower limit of determination is dependent on the equipment used and the quality of the methanol grade used for the extraction of the soil sample.
