  • VOCs – why speciate?

    The Quantitech stands (Nos. 44 & 51) at AQE 2015 in Telford, the air quality and emissions show, will feature three different technologies for measuring individual organic compounds. This is extremely important because VOCs mostly exist in a mixture of more than one organic compound, so measurements can be misleading unless the individual compounds are speciated. Firstly, AQE2015 will provide ...
