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).

Testimonial

We help US and International clients prepare their chemical packaging labeling for marketing success in Canada. It has been my pleasure to work with Nexreg for the last 2 years on many domestic and international jobs. They have provided my company, and my clients, with CCCR determination and other product assessments in a timely, professional and forthright manner. Their employees, such as James Dayus, have been proactive, professional and personable. I trust them to talk directly to my clients and they have never let me down on professional document completion or deadlines. They are great to work with and I wholeheartedly endorse their work.
