Soil quality — Laboratory incubation systems for measuring the mineralization of organic chemicals in soil under aerobic conditions

ISO 14239:2017 specifies six suitable incubation systems for measuring the rates and extent of mineralization of organic compounds in soil by measurement of carbon dioxide (CO2) evolution. All incubation systems are applicable to soluble or insoluble compounds but choice of system depends on the overall purposes of the study.

ISO 14239:2017 does not apply to the use of such systems for material balance studies, which are often test-substance specific.
