The paper discusses the development, initial evaluation, and field application to incinerators of a new sampling train for volatile organic species. The Volatile Organic Sampling Train (VOST) is a simple portable device, combining Tenax and Tenax/charcoal cartridges as collection agents. Analysis of the sorption cartridges includes a further concentration step that permits the measurement of stack concentrations as low as 0.1 ng/L. The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act requires owners or operators of hazardous waste incinerators to demonstrate that the incinerator can achieve adequate destruction efficiency of certain compounds before a permit is issued. Many of the compounds that are commonly of interest are of low molecular weight and volatile.
