    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covers the determination of the percentage of gaseous products, exclusive of moisture vapor, in the analysis sample which is released under specific conditions of the test. The knowledge of the volatile matter content assists in predicting burning characteristics of RDF.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D34 on Waste Management, this standard was withdrawn with no replacement in July 2011 because of limited use by industry in light of analogous standards for coal.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of the percentage of gaseous products, exclusive of moisture vapor, in the analysis sample which is released under specific conditions of the test. The knowledge of the volatile matter content assists in predicting burning characteristics of RDF.

    1.2 This test method may be applicable to any waste material from which a laboratory analysis sample can be prepared.

    This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
