Release of volatile trace gases from waste materials

Project Details


Procedures and models for the diffusive release of trace gases (e.g. CFCs, HFCs, and others) from waste materials such as insulation foam, plastics etc. have been developed and applied to a range of materials found in household appliances. The fate of the released VOCs in landfills after disposal is also studied. The work is partly funded by Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers, Washington DC, USA
