EPA is currently working on guidance for PFAS emissions testing, which will be known as Other Test Method – 45 (OTM-45). Because many PFAS compounds are considered semi-volatiles, OTM-45 is expected to be similar to an EPA SW-846 Method 0010: Modified Method 5 Sampling Train, but with slight modifications. A few of these modifications include:
Alliance Source Testing is the nation’s leader in stack testing and has decades of experience with volatile and semi-volatile organic sampling systems. Since the mid-1990’s, Alliance Source Testing and its legacy companies have conducted hundreds of test programs that utilized the SW-846 Method 0010 sampling train, for the determination of semi-volatile compounds. Most of these test programs involved large-scale testing events with multiple isokinetic sampling systems operating simultaneously. As recently as 2020, Alliance Source Testing has provided PFAS sampling services to clients involved in carbon regeneration and landfill disposal. These sampling projects involved the newly developed PFAS standard operating procedures and techniques vetted by experts in the analytical community. In addition, Alliance Source Testing partners with Eurofins TestAmerica for PFAS analysis. Eurofins TestAmerica is a leader in stack testing analysis and has been instrumental in the development of OTM-45 sampling and analysis methodologies. This partnership demonstrates our commitment to assembling the strongest PFAS team in order to meet the objectives of our clients.
As we enter the new year, Alliance Source Testing continues to prepare for multiple PFAS projects in 2021 and beyond. If you would like to discuss how Alliance Source Testing can assist you with your PFAS emissions testing, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
