Abstract: Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are yielded from wastewater treatment. The potential environmental and health hazards imposed by VOCs has only been recently determined. VOC emissions are subjected to a checking process and assessment to reduce possible health risks. Ambient concentrations are measured from liquid-phase concentrations and other data. Environmental significance of wastewater treatment facilities is also evaluated by this method.
