The document is a state-of-the-art operating protocol for sampling and analysis of volatile organic constituents of flue gas from hazardous waste incinerators or other similar combustor systems using the Volatile Organic Sampling Train (VOST). It is intended to be used for guidance by personnel of the regulatory groups, personnel associated with engineering research and development, and the regulated community. The document is in two parts. Part A describes the key components of the train, the procedures for preparing the sorbent materials, and procedures for sample collection using the VOST. Part B describes the procedures for analyzing VOST sorbent cartridges for volatile principal organic hazardous constituents (POHCs) using purge-trap-desorb gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (P-T-D GC/MS). Quality control procedures are presented in both parts.
