This document provides to those wishing to determine the total organics content of source samples. Writers of air quality permit applications for waste combustion units require total organics data for their assessments. This document identifies specific techniques to determine the total organics sampled from stationary sources. The document seeks to avoid the confusion about organics measurement and eliminate the misleading and non-descriptive titles often given to different facets of organics analysis. It also provides information about combining the component parts of the organics analysis results into a helpful description of the data. Knowing the amount of previously uncharacterized organic material enables more accurate risk assessment estimates to be made. Discussions of the specific methods and operating procedures are found in the appendices and references.
