Geruchs- und Schadstoffemissionen durch Baustoffe in Innenräumen - Eine Literaturstudie
: Fraunhofer-Arbeitsgruppe für Holzforschung, Wilhelm-Klauditz-Institut -WKI-, Braunschweig
The report gives a literature survey on emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from materials used in buildings and for decorative purposes. It bases on results of measurements, described in about 500 publications and on unpublished results from the Fraunhofer-Working Group for Wood Research (WKI). The VOC-emission from insulation materials, wood composites, flooring materials, wall covering, coating, paints, adhesives, wood protectives and other materials are discussed in detail. The composition of the materials and the causes for the emission are described as far as known. The release of formaldehyd from building materials is presented particularly. The present knowledge about analytical methods procedures to reduce VOC-emission are described. The report is enlarged by information on real-life situations and legal regulations in the Federal Republic of Germany and other European states. Future requirement are considered by a description of the running and expecteddevelopments in research.
