The Air and Energy Engineering Research Laboratory of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) conducts and sponsors research on technology to reduce or eliminate emissions of potentially toxic volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from industrial/commercial sources. The realization that indoor air environments, where most humans spend the majority of their time, also contain significant levels of VOCs has led to a number of EPA sponsored studies on monitoring, modeling, and controlling these compounds. The purpose of the paper is two fold: (1) to present an overview of the problem of indoor air pollution by VOCs and approaches to solving it; and (2) to report the results of a study to determine the feasibility of carbon adsorption for control of VOCs in indoor air.
