Abstract
Determination of 'total organics' from stack emissions is much more complicated than might be expected, and more published guidance is needed badly. The best scheme available for analysis of 'total organics' of stack emissions for material balance style 'bookkeeping' includes determination of organics content in three point ranges, less than 100 deg. C, 100 deg. C to 300 deg. C, and greater than 300 deg. C. Various calculations also can be made and conclusions can be drawn based on the contents of the individual boiling point ranges, as determined conclusions can be drawn based on the contents of the individual boiling point ranges, as determined by the recommended methodology. The analysis strategy is complicated, difficult, and contains limitations and compromises. It does not, however, require exotic analysis instrumentation nor is it very expensive. Each of these facets of the methodology is discussed in the paper, along with a status report on development of a guidance document and a research project intended to produce improved methods.
