The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency uses Method 0030, the Volatile Organic Sampling Train (VOST), as a tool in determining the destruction and removal efficiencies of industrial boilers co-firing hazardous waste. Recently, concerns have been expressed over possible measurement biases due to soot deposits within the VOST. A laboratory study was initiated to investigate the collection efficiency of the method under sooty conditions. Method collection efficiency was evaluated by comparing volatile organic compound (VOC) levels in a control VOST (free of soot contamination) to VOC levels recovered while using a soot-laden particulate filter in the VOST probe assembly. VOCs were evaluated over the range of boiling points covered by the VOST method.
