The report discusses a three-level approach to sampling and analysis, and gives details of a Level 1 sampling and analysis phased approach for an environmental source assessment. A research program was initiated to develop a sampling and analytical approach for conducting environmental source assessments of the feed, product, and waste streams associated with industrial and energy processes. An environmental source assessment identifies potential air, water, and terrestrial problems for both regulated (specific standards exist) and unregulated pollutants (future regulations may be necessary). The three-level sampling and analysis approach resulted from this program. Level 1 is a complete survey of all streams, using simplified, generalized sampling and analytical methods which permit priority ranking; i.e., hazardous streams are distinguished from those less hazardous or relatively innocuous in nature. Level 2 is detailed sampling and analysis of the streams ranked in the highest priority by the Level 1 survey. Other streams may then be addressed according to potential hazard. Level 3 involves continuous monitoring of 'key' indicator materials to evaluate the effect on emissions of process variability.
