Volatile Organic Compounds Emissions of Particleboards in Response to Processing Parameters
The purpose of this study is to reveal the concentration variations of VOC concentrations of larch particleboards with different processing parameters. The mat moisture content (MC), panel type and density were chosen as the influencing factors to investigate the VOC emissions after processing, and consequently provide basic guideline for the selection of processing parameters of particleboards to control the pollutants. 1m3 environmental chamber and portable VOC monitor were used for VOC sampling and analysis. The results showed that these factors had significant impact on VOC concentrations. The increase of MC, board panel and density had a positive effect on VOC emissions. With the MC and board density various in the ranges from 6%-14% and 0.60-0.80 g·cm-3, the TVOC concentrations increased 42.6% and 74.7% separately. The three layers particleboard had the higher concentration than the single layer particleboard.
