GLRPPR Sector Resource: Measurements of Indoor Toxic VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) Concentrations Attributed to the Residential Storage of Household Products

Title:
Measurements of Indoor Toxic VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) Concentrations Attributed to the Residential Storage of Household Products

Abstract:
This Illinois Waste Management and Research Center (WMRC) research report was written by Clyde Sweet, Kevin Cappo, William Rose, Jeff Gordon, Rose Geier-Wilson, and Stephan Vermette. The report describes a study in which the concentrations of VOCs generated by the storage of hazardous household products were measured in a test house and in three actual residences. Results indicated that storage and use of products in the home and attached storage areas can cause significant elevation in the levels of toxic VOCs in indoor air. (PDF format; Length: 82 pages)
