VOC, short for volatile organic compounds, are a type of organic compound that can easily evaporate at room temperature. In general, VOC refers to any volatile organic compound, but in the context of environmental protection, it specifically refers to the type of volatile organic compounds that can cause harm. These VOCs can have a significant impact on human health. When VOC concentrations in indoor environments reach a certain level, people may experience headaches, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and other symptoms. In severe cases, seizures, unconsciousness, and harm to the liver, kidneys, brain, and nervous system can occur, leading to serious consequences such as reduced memory capacity.
VOCs are primarily generated outdoors through fuel combustion and transportation, and indoors through burning coal and natural gas, smoking, heating, cooking, building and decorative materials, furniture, home appliances, cleaning agents, and human emissions.
There are many industries that produce VOCs, such as the tobacco industry (ink, organic solvents), textile industry (adhesives used in footwear), toy industry (correction fluid, scented toys), furniture and decorative materials (paint, adhesive), automotive parts materials (adhesives, paint), and electronics industry (VOCs released at high temperatures, cleaning solvents for electronic hardware), as well as detergents, cleaning agents, fabric softeners, cosmetics, office supplies, wallpaper, and other decorative items.
