Title: VOC emissions from building products

Ref Code: DG464
Authors: C Yu and D Crump

Abstract1: Building materials and furnishing products are significant sources of VOCs in indoor environments. VOCs have a strong impact on indoor air quality during the first two years of a new building. The pollution load can be reduced by selecting low emission materials. An emission database is being developed at BRE and will enable designers and users to evaluate the impact of materials on indoor air quality. Part 1 describes sources and methods for measuring VOC emissions, and data for assessing health risks and pollution loads. Part 2 describes available guidelines and labelling schemes for control of VOC emissions in buildings.
