Table 2 Methods were used to measure different target gaseous pollutants

From: Gaseous pollutants from a small-scale aerobic biological treatment facility: odor and health risk assessment

Pre-concentration method Test method Target gaseous pollutants
Colorimetric tube Ammonia
Sorbent Gas chromatography with flame ionization detection (GC-FID) Volatile fatty acids (VFAs)
Cold trap Gas chromatography with flame ionization detection (GC-FID) Aromatics, terpenes, alcohols
Cold trap Gas chromatography with pulsed flame photometric detection (GC-PFPD) Reduced sulfur compounds (RSCs)
Derivatization High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) Carbonyl compounds
