  • A Guide to BFB Tuning for VOC Analysis

    All US EPA methods for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) require that specific GCMS tuning criteria be met before running a calibration curve or analyzing actual samples. The GCMS is tuned using the traditional tuning compound, PFTBA (perfluorotributylamine), and the tune is evaluated every 12 hours by injecting BFB (4-bromofluorobenzene) and measuring the relative intensity of key mass ...

  • Train derailment prompts contaminated land investigation

    On March 30th 2015 a long freight train, transporting a variety of goods including lumber and chemicals, wound its way through the state of Mississippi. At around 5pm, part of the train failed to negotiate a curved portion of the track in a rural area near Minter City, resulting in the derailment of nine railcars, one of which leaked chemicals onto agricultural farmland and woodlands. Emergency ...

  • Common Treatment Technologies for Nonhalogenated VOCs

    Soil vapor extraction (SVE), thermal desorption, and incineration are the presumptive remedies for Superfund sites with nonhalogenated VOC-contaminated soil. Because a presumptive remedy is a technology that EPA believes, based upon its past experience, generally will be the most appropriate remedy for a specified type of site, the presumptive remedy approach will accelerate site-specific ...

  • Case study : VOC analysis in ambient air by FID dectection - Complete system airmOzone

    Ozone concentration has been multiplied by 5 in the last century in the middle latitudes of the northern hemisphere from 10 PPB in 1874 to approximately 50 PPB today. This is an increase of 1.6% per year; the trend is probably higher (2.4% a year) over the last decades. (Chapter 1 of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Program - World Climate Research Program) In order to stop this global ...

  • SPME/GC Analyses of Sulfur Gases and VOCs, Using a Carboxen/PDMS Fiber

    Sample extraction of sulfur compounds and VOCs by traditional methods can be difficult and expensive. Typically, sulfur analysis requires concentration of the gas using adsorbent tubes containing carbon adsorbents. Analysis by such means, however, requires the use of an expensive thermal desorption unit to heat the tubes before transferring the gases to a gas chromatograph. Analysis of VOCs ...

  • A Comparison of Three Wastewater Collection System VOC Emissions Models

    Three models were compared to determine their ability to accurately predict emissions from two wastewater collection system components; gravity flow reaches and drop structures. Models investigated included the INTERCEPTOR Model, TOXCHEM+ and WATER9.Data used to perform the analysis were obtained from published literature. A total of 128 individual runs per model were completed in performing the ...

  • Vapor-Phase Biofilters Show Promise for Treating High VOC Emissions.

    Evaluating the Feasibility of Natural AttenuationUsing natural attenuation to remediate organic compounds in groundwater has gained popularity. In some cases, this process can reduce contaminant levels to below risk-based corrective action criteria or regulatory standards without implementing additional remedial action alternatives. However, it is often difficult to prove that natural ...

  • VOC composition and ozone-forming potential of the exhaust gas of in-use motorcycles

    The emission profile of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and the ozone-forming potential (OP) of the exhaust gas of six in-use motorcycles (four 4-stroke- and two 2-stroke-engines) were determined. The motorcycles were tested on a chassis dynamometer in a real-world driving cycle. The analysis involved the C2–C12-hydrocarbons as well as the aldehydes and ketones. Additionally, the regulated THC ...
