This innovative technology evaluation report (ITER) presents information on the demonstration of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 7 Superfund Field Analytical Screening Program (FASP) method for determining polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) contamination in soil. The method uses a gas chromatograph (GC) equipped with a megabore capillary column and an electron capture detector (ECD). The FASP PCB Method is an abbreviated, modified version of approved methods. Soil samples require extraction before GC analysis. To remove matrix interferences, a sulfuric acid cleanup step is used during the FASP PCB Method.
