ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY PROTOCOL VERIFICATION REPORT, EMISSIONS OF VOCS AND ALDEHYDES FROM COMMERCIAL FURNITURE (WITH APPENDICES)
Anon. ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY PROTOCOL VERIFICATION REPORT, EMISSIONS OF VOCS AND ALDEHYDES FROM COMMERCIAL FURNITURE (WITH APPENDICES). U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, EPA/600/R-99/128.
As part of a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Environmental Technology Verification program, the Research Triangle Institute (RTI) developed a test protocol for measuring volatile organic compounds and aldehydes in a large chamber. RTI convened stakeholders for the commercial furniture industry for advice and review of the protocol. In October 1998, a protocol verification test was performed using office chairs. Three laboratories participated in the test. This report gives information on the emissions from the chairs, interlaboratory comparisons, and intralaboratory comparisons. The emissions from the chairs were very low, thus providing a rigorous test of the protocol.
