The manual presents a very simple, yet informative, analytical strategy for the purpose of initial survey, to ensure that important emission problems do not go undetected. It also presents a more complex and detailed scheme for use on samples given high priority by the initial survey analysis. The manual was developed because of a major problem associated with the analysis of potentially hazardous organic emissions: a very large number of organic compounds may be present in a given industrial sample. If exhaustive analytical methods were applied to every emission source to be assessed, costs would become completely unreasonable, and much effort would be misdirected on samples of little concern. A comparison volume, concerned with sampling of organic substances, is available, and has been fully coordinated with the technical manual to ensure compatibility.
