The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has listed inorganic arsenic emissions as a hazardous air pollutant. USEPA proposed Method 108 for the measurement of these emissions from stationary sources has been subjected to validation studies in this work. Laboratory and field studies were performed. Laboratory studies included analysis of laboratory samples, preparation and analysis of liquid and filter audit samples, and sample stability determinations. Field studies included determination of the precision of the method in the measurement of inorganic arsenic emissions from stationary sources at the two industries currently subject to the USEPA proposed inorganic arsenic emissions regulations. Considering the sampling sites and the variability of process operations, these results indicate a highly acceptable degree of precision. Literature reviews to reveal the sources of emissions are reported. Recommendations are made for improving the method.
