Abstract

This report describes the system used by MOE to identify non-target organic compounds for the Municipal Industrial Strategy for Abatement (MISA) program by using GC-MS data. This type of determination is called a "characterization" analysis. Application of this system enables the analyst to use a standard classification system for the reporting of characterization data of defined quality, yet allows the flexibility needed to use all available information to identify organic compounds in municipal and industrial effluents.
