The paper discusses the effects of ventilation rates and product loading on organic emission rates from particleboard. Recently, investigators have confirmed the presence of varied and significant amounts of organic compounds in indoor environment, including compounds known or suspected to be health hazards. Identification of, sources of, mechanisms for entry into the environment of, and techniques for control of specific chemicals have become important research areas. For the particleboard tests, standard conditions of 23 C and 50% relative humidity were maintained. Concentrations of organic compounds detected are presented. The relationship between increasing formaldehyde concentrations and decreasing emission rates is discussed.
