To investigate the properties and migration of volatile organic compounds (voc) in floor systems with emission barriers and recommend suitable methods for reducing their emission into room air.

Objective

PMVOC will investigate the properties of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and their migratory paths in floor constructions in buildings and the possible benefits of introducing an emission barrier. VOC are the result of the interaction of floor coverings, moisture and concrete. They are suspected as a major contributor to sick building syndrome (SBS) and as such a cause of health damage to humans. The aim of PMVOC will be to recommend better methods and products for controlling the emission of VOC into room air.
