Paper Abstract

The need continues to exist for faster analysis results and lower minimum limits (MDLs) to ensure that the protection of public health is not compromised during air contaminant releases associated with the cleanup of hazardous waste sites. This has led to the development of techniques to optimize and automate the analysis software routines employed in the field for use with open-path Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. This paper describes the development and implementations of one such optimization and automation approach based on experience at approxiamately 20 hazardous waste and industrial sites over the past four years.
