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).
