Danish EPA Update

Posted Date: 
Tuesday, March 14, 2017

The Danish Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), has discovered that there is a lack of systematic investigation into levels of volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds (VOCs and SVOCs) in many new cars.

 In a recent project, the EPA found that the interior in cars contain many synthetic materials, playing a big role in releasing the compounds.

The project found that Hyrdocarbons emit the greatest levels of volatile compounds. Potential health concerns from substances found in a cars interior includes:

  • acrolein (eye and respiratory irritation, tissue damage caused by long-term exposure);
  • benzene (carcinogenic);
  • crotonaldehyde (eye and respiratory irritation);
  • formaldehyde (carcinogenic, eye and respiratory irritation);
  • naphthalene (carcinogenic, eye and respiratory irritation); and
  • phenol (eye and respiratory irritation).
