This paper presents the design and evaluation results for a metal-coated multilayer Tedlar (MMT) bag that was developed for the collection of source emissions. The applicability of the MMT bag was evaluated for a number of important greenhouse relevant gases: CO, CO2, CH4, N2O, and total hydrocarbons (THCs). The bag was tested for durability and stability for a range of concentrations of the tested compounds using both laboratory-prepared samples and real source samples. The results show that all tested compounds were more stable when stored in the MMT bag than when stored in a regular Tedlar bag. These compounds can be stored at room temperature for at least 3 months without significant changes in concentration. When properly packed, the MMT bag is durable and may be shipped by air. The MMT bag is lower in cost, lighter in weight, and easier to clean, and it requires less devices during the subsequent laboratory analysis compared with a stainless steel canister, which is often used to collect air and source samples.
