The objectives of the project are to assess the state of the art of continuous emission monitoring of vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) and to conduct actual experiments to evaluate two monitors in laboratory and in a six-month field testing program. A process GC with flame ionization detector and a photoionization detector were used during this study. Three one-week EPA Method 106 tests were conducted during the six-month field testing program to measure the relative accuracies of the monitors. The precisions of both types of detectors all were in the 1% range when evaluated in laboratory. The relative accuracies for both types of detectors were < 10% for VCM concentration between 2 to 10 ppm.
