Analysis of Wastewaters Following U.S. EPA 200.7 Using the Avio 550 Max ICP-OES

Introduction

The prevention and control of water pollution is of critical importance to protecting both human and environmental health, and as a result, water must be monitored for pollutants at various stages, starting from the discharge of wastes and wastewaters all the way through the production of drinking water. In this regard, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) developed Method 200.7 for the determination of metals and trace elements in waters and wastes by ICP-OES.

This work demonstrates the ability of the Avio® 550 Max fully simultaneous ICP-OES to efficiently and accurately perform wastewater analysis following the guidelines in U.S. EPA Method 200.7.
