Source Emissions Tests

KM-3 tests were conducted in accordance with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards as defined in document Title 40, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 60 (40 CFR 60), Appendix A, Methods 1, 2, 3A, 4, 5 and 25A, and Puget Sound Air Pollution Control Agency (PSAPCA) Method 5 back-half extraction procedures.

The independent testing laboratory, AMTEST, of Washington State ran three (3) 60-minute tests. The TDU processed 11-12 CY of soil per hour during the tests (16 to 18 tons). EPA Method 25A was performed to quantify emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) as THC using a flame ionization analyzer (FIA). PSAPCA back-half analysis procedures were used for considerable matter analysis.
