Several chlorinated solvents are being evaluated for future emission regulations by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Many state and local agencies already regulate chlorinated solvents. Therefore, measurement methodologies for these compounds should be investigated. Entropy was commissioned by the Quality Assurance Division of EPA's Atmospheric Research and Exposure Assessment Laboratory to perform laboratory and field studies to evaluate sampling and analytical techniques for the measurement of carbon tetrachloride (CCl4), chloroform (CHCl3), perchloroethylene (PERC), and trichloroethylene (TCE) emissions from stationary sources. The studies were conducted in two phases: preliminary work and field studies evaluating EPA Method 18 when applied to the emissions of PERC from degreasing facilities and laboratory and field studies evaluating modified EPA Method 18 sampling procedures for collection of all four chlorinated solvents under high temperature and high moisture conditions.
