The report gives results of evaluations and tests of currently available portable instrumentation used to monitor fugitive organic emissions generated by the transfer and storage of liquid wastes during the operation of hazardous waste incinerators. Relevant current methodologies were evaluated, and results and recommendations of the evaluations were tested. The evaluation of current methodologies for portable volatile organic compound (VOC) monitors, with regard to their applicability in monitoring fugitive organic emissions from hazardous waste incinerators, was completed and is documented as Appendix A of the report. The recommendation was to perform a limited field test with two photoionization analyzers (PIDs) at an operating liquid waste incinerator. A portable flame ionization detector (FID) (for which considerable prior data exists) was to be the reference. Most of the report discusses field tests of the evaluation results at the Cincinnati Municipal Sewer District's incinerator. Test data indicate that, for this application, either a PID containing a 10.2 eV light source or a FID is suitable.
