Volatile Organic Compounds CBT


Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are all around us on ships in the form of hydrocarbons in tanks, dioxides and monoxides from engine exhaust, and gasoline blends.

VOCs are both man-made and naturally occurring; controlling their emissions is important to protecting our health and the environment.
