German term or phrase: BTX, EOX, PAK, LHKW, SM
In the context of ground water mediation, these abbreviations occur throughout the Survey Report as hazardous materials for which analysis is being done. Sorry that's all the context because they occur only as entries in tables.

BTX, EOX, PAK, LHKW, SM

Thanks,

Harold

English translation:BTX, EOX, PAH, ?, ?.
Explanation:
I found only three of your terms in Routledge's Fachwörterbuch Umwelttechnik:

BTX - (ABWASSER) = BTX (benzene,toluol, xylene)

EOX - (ABFALL, ANALYTIK, WASSER) = EOX (extractable organic halogen compounds)

PAK - (ABFALL, ABWASSER, LUFT, WASSER) = PAH (polycrilic aromatic hydrocarbon)

German abbreviations stand for:
BTX - Benzol, Toluol, Xylol
EOX - extrahierbare organische Halogenverbindungen
PAK - polyzyklischer aromatischer Kohlenwasserstoff

I'll keep working on the LHKW and SM.

Hi,

The first 4 are kosher, but this one is from the WGD (Wild Guess Department).

Sorry!

Sven.

BTX, EOX, PAH, VHHC, HM


Explanation:
found more info re LHKW (see ref.1):
'Hazardous substance: Volatile halogenated hydrocabons (VHHC).'

and agree with Sven re SM = Schwermetall (Ref 2):
'.. halogenierte Kohlenwasserstoffen (HKW) und Schwermetallen (SM) belastet.'
(no more text as 'This page can't be displayed'.)


and

'The goal of the meeting was to evolve a procedure how to make an objective assessment of soil quality in Europe in respect to thir heavy metal (MH) and organic matter (OM) contents'
http://esb.aris.sai.jrc.it/documents/2000-esb-bulletin/bulle...

I'm still not 100 % sure about SM-HM. Hope somebody else can cofirm it.

Explanation:
benzene-toluene-xylenes
extractable organic halogens
polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon
highly volatile halogenated hydrocarbons
heavy metals
I do not know the acronyms for PAK (PAH?) or LHKW - in translations I usually write them out and have had no complaints so far.
