The sampling and analysis methods described in the report were specifically designed for use in an ongoing nationwide survey of emissions of organic pollutants from stationary combustion sources. The primary focus of the survey is on polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and polychlorinated aromatic hydrocarbons including polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs). To date, these procedures have been used by Midwest Research Institute (MRI) to survey emissions from coal-fired utility boilers, a co-fired (coal + refuse-derived fuel) utility boiler, and a municipal refuse incinerator. The document was prepared by MRI as a guideline for laboratories who may participate in the study, and for other researchers who wish to use these methods.
