Clean soil at child-care centres and public playgrounds- an important part of Norway’s chemical policy

This study reviews clean soil at child care centres and public playgrounds, an important part of chemical policy in Norway. Topics discussed include: survey area; materials and methods (soil sampling at existing child care centres and public playgrounds, chemical analysis [fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”][As and metals, polychlorinated biphenyls, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, dioxins/furans, Cr6+], quality control [field duplicates, chemical analysis], data analysis and map preparation); health risk evaluation; results and comments; discussion (pollution sources [Pb, benzo(a)pyrene and PAH16, As, Hg, Ni, polychlorinated biphenyls, Cd, dioxins/furans, Cr6+], sampling strategy, remediation); and conclusions.
