The most significant scientific achievements
The researchers of the Laboratory
substantiated scientifically a necessity of the performance of complex hygienic assessment of soil quality at the territory of the settlements by the foreground parameters: physical-and-chemical (salts content of heavy metals), helminthological, and microbiological;
substantiated scientifically and improved a system of sanitary-and-epidemiological measures in the sphere of handling with solid waste;
for the first time substantiated scientifically the hygienic standards for the allowable levels of the petroleum products in soils taking into account as oil type and the conditions of their use;
according to the requirements of the international legislation in the sphere of handling with toxic waste, substantiated the scientific approaches to the determination of the risk class of the industrial waste by the integral indices, including their toxicological, epidemiological and radiological characteristics.
