Section 1: Applicability

This Environment Canada Reference Method (RM) is applicable to the determination of emissions of polychlorinated dibenzo-para-dioxins (PCDDs), polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and other semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs) from stationary sources. Semi-volatile organics are defined as compounds with boiling points greater than 100°C. The testing procedures in Method A, B, C, D and F, contained in Environment Canada Report EPS 1-AP-74-1, "Reference Methods for Source Testing: Measurement of Emissions of Particulates from Stationary Sources" (as amended), are to be used in conjunction with the SVOC method:
