In evaluating stationary source sampling and analytical methodology, two different source types are used. EPA is evaluating the volatile halogenated organic compounds listed in Title III of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990. An initial field evaluation study was conducted for the VOST (SW-846 sampling Method 0030, analytical Method 5041) at a coal fired steam generating plant. A chemical manufacturing facility was selected as a second test site. The presence of low levels of some of the compounds of interest was established by the VOST analysis of samples collected during a presurvey. The sampling plan followed the requirements of EPA Method 301, and the data were evaluated statistically. Of 23 volatile halogenated organic compounds tested, the VOST showed acceptable performance with respect to recovery and precision for 17.
