US EPA RELEASES TECHNICAL GUIDANCE FOR PASSIVE INDOOR AIR SAMPLING

Friday, August 21st - 2015

The US EPA released in August 2015 an Engineering Issue Paper titled, Passive Samplers for Investigations of Air Quality: Method Description, Implementation, and Comparison to Alternative Sampling Methods.

This comprehensive guidance provides details on how to desgn and implement a passive sampling program,types of samplers that can be used, data quality objectives, how to inrepret passive sampling results, the current challenges and research needed to further this effective sampling approach, and provides a list of references including two journal articles describing research completed by Beacon. 

Beacon continues to further the understanding and capabilities of passive sampling techniques by working with sorbent manufactures, unversity researchers, and practitioners.  Published articles on some of the past work can be found on our Resources page.
