Computing VOC & HAPs Releases

VOC & HAPs Releases

Ozone is a pollutant regulated by U.S. EPA. A VOC or Volatile Organic Chemical, is a compound that contains carbon and reacts with nitrogen oxides in the presence of sunlight to form ozone.

A HAP or Hazardous Air Pollutant, are air pollutants that are known to cause cancer and other serious health impacts. The Clean Air Act requires the EPA to regulate toxic air pollutants.

Various regulatory bodies may require the computation of the total quantity of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) that evaporate into the air as a result business operations.

Many permits require monthly or even daily calculations of emissions to demonstrate compliance with permit conditions.

Calculating Emissions from Coating and Painting Operations

8 Page PDF. This case study from the Ohio EPA explains how to calculate emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC), hazardous air pollutants (HAP), and select toxic air contaminants (TAC) from common coating and painting operations.

Air Pollution Emissions

The Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards strives to assess the impacts of air pollution emissions and the results of efforts to curb these emissions.


hazMIN SDS Online Management Building Blocks
SDS Management
VOCs and HAPs may be documented as SDS components, or not. In some cased the Percent VOC is sufficient to drive the report.
Regulated Substance Database
When SDS components are cross-referenced as VOC/HAP, the RegSub source list may drive release calculations.
Chemical Inventory
Document the usage of hazardous materials.
Environmental Reporting
Compute VOC/HAP based on specific SDS component, independent release factor, or VOC based on SDS information.
Task Management (Optional)
Assign responsibilities, and document compliance.
