  • CARB Report: Common Indoor Sources of Volatile Organic Compounds - Emission Rates and Techniques for Reducing Consumer Exposures

To characterize and quantify the emissions rates of VOCs, including TACs, from three general categories of common indoor building and decorating materials. Also, to measure the effectiveness of various practical measures that consumers can take to reduce their exposures to the VOCs emitted from these products during and after home remodeling activities.
