[Earl M Hansen; Industrial Environmental Research Laboratory (Research Triangle Park, N.C.)].   An operating protocol for sampling and analysis of voltatile organic constituents of flue gas from hazardous waste incinerators or other similar combustor systems using the Volatile Organic Sampling Train (VOST) is presented. It is intended to be used for guidance by personnel of the regulatory groups, personnel associated with engineering research and development, and the regulated by: 1. rate of 1 L/min, using a glass-lined probe and a volatile organic sampling train (VOST). (Operation of the VOST under these conditions has been called FAST-VOST.) The gas stream is cooled to 20EC by passage through a water-cooled condenser and volatile POHCs are collected on . Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) Overview When collecting samples for volatile organics analysis, the most critical aspect of the collection process is the prevention of headspace at the top of the sample in the container. The presence of headspace (i.e. air bubble) in the same container can compromise the integrity of the sample results.

Protocols that are available for con- ducting a trial burn plan and for the sampling and analysis of specific designated POHCs can be extended and incorporated into a screening protocol. The basic "building blocks" from which a cost-effective screening protocol can be assembled have been developed for hazardous waste incineration programs.

A Method to Measure Emissions of Particulate Matter, Metals and Hydrogen Chloride from Stationary Sources, Environmental Protection . The Protocol specifies three options for emission reduction targets that have to be chosen upon signature or upon ratification: (i) 30% reduction in emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) by using a year between and as a basis. Method B:Using the same analytical technique as Method A, the compound list for Method B includes ten additional compounds but does not require the analysis of several branched aromatics and halogenated compounds. Method B:This packed column GC/MS method is used to monitor 79 volatile pollu-tants in hazardous waste samples. Several options for the collection, preservation, and storage of samples for VOC analysis are described in Appendix A of SW Method A. Special considerations for samples to be extracted using the Synthetic Precipitation Leaching Procedure (SPLP) prior to analysis .
