Some VOC’s like 1,3 butadiene or benzene are known to be carcinogenic.
The French ministerial recommendation (DGS / SD 7 B no 2005-273 of February 25th, 2005) relating to the evaluation of the consequences on health of air pollution due to traffic showed that those two compounds are critical. In petrochemicals, these compounds are also closely monitored.
Today, Chromatotec offers a new option for the simultaneous analysis of 1,3 Butadiene and the BTEX Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, Xylene) with the analyser GC 866 airTOXIC (PID).
These instruments enable also to separate two interfering species : Cyclohexane (car traffic) and Styrene (petrochemicals).
