Interesting Method 201/202 Alert From EPA (01/08/97)

The following message was posted to EPA's EMTIC Alert. It indicates that EPA is, after about 3 years, again looking at these fine particle and condensable stack sampling methods. RMB was active in debating the methods when they were originally proposed and promulgated by EPA because all of the methods have serious problems. If you have experience with these methods, we would appreciate you contact us via email and share your experience/data. These methods may become critical to utilities under the proposed ambient PM 2.5 and short-term SO2 regulations.


Fine particulate matter stack test methods -- The Emission Measurement Center is interested in any information about field applications of Methods 201, 201A, or 202 (for measuring PM10 and condensable particulate matter) or for similar methods. The most useful information would be about field experiences including the types of sources tested, comparisons with other data, and technical difficulties in either collecting representative samples or the analysis. Please contact Tom Logan at (919) 541-2580 or via email.
