Abstract
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) created the Environmental Technology Verification Program (ETV) to facilitate the deployment of innovative or improved environmental technologies through performance verification and dissemination of information. The goal of the ETV Program is to further environmental protection by substantially accelerating the acceptance and use of improved and cost-effective technologies. ETV seeks to achieve this goal by providing high-quality, peer-reviewed data on technology performance to those involved in the design, distribution, financing, permitting, purchase, and use of environmental technologies. The verification of a field analytical technology for measurement of lead in dust wipe samples is described in this report. The verification test was conducted in Hartford, Connecticut, from November 5 through November 9, 2001. The performance of NITON's XL-300 Series X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) spectrum analyzer was determined under field conditions. The technology was evaluated by comparing its results to estimated concentration values and with results obtained on similar samples using a recognized laboratory analytical method. The performance of NITON's XL-700 Series XRF has been reported in a separate verification report.
