The analysis of incinerator effluents often focuses on the analysis of one or a few compounds as principal organic hazardous constituents (POHCs) and on products of incomplete combustion (PICs) to provide coverage for other compounds. Recent studies have proposed a risk-driven, tiered-analysis protocol to characterize combustion effluents. The testing of screening protocols for the measurement of organic emissions from incinerators can be divided into three categories: volatile, semivolatile, and nonvolatile. This study has concentrated on the semivolatile and nonvolatile categories of organic emissions. Samples were obtained from incinerator tests or were prepared as laboratory spike samples. Method evaluations were based on two types of samples. These were laboratory spiked samples to provide coverage of compounds of interest and field samples from incinerator tests. Incinerator samples were extracted and analyzed by GRAV, TCO, HPLC/UV, and GC/MS techniques. The other group of samples consisted of three split MM-5 trains. These were extracted and analyzed by GRAV, TCO, HPLC/UV, GC/MS, and HPLC/MS techniques.
