A modified EPA Method 5 (MM5) sampling train and a dynamic spiking system were used to characterize the precision and accuracy of the collection and analysis of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and polychlorinated dibenzo-furans (PCDFs) in municipal waste combustor (MWC) emissions. Isotopically labeled PCDD and PCDF compounds were dynamically spiked into the sampling train during the MWC flue gas sampling in addition to the spikes directly into the XAD-2 resin component of the MM5 sampling train just prior to sampling. The results from the study indicate that the sampling trains provide quantitative and reproducible measurements of PCDDs and PCDFs under the conditions used during the study. Accuracy of the measurements, estimated from the dynamic spiking system, ranged from 77.6% to 117%. The pooled relative standard deviations of the difference in recovery were between 5.77% to 12.3% for different compounds.
