Mid and full-scale stainless steel chambers were used to characterize emission sources in a partitioned office environment, including personal computers, printers, copiers, office workstation components (desk, cabinet, partition panels), chairs and carpet. Major compounds emitted from these sources include: 1,3-dichlorobenzene, ethylbenzene, m-xylene, p-xylene, pentadecane, phenol, styrene and toluene. Results show the emission rates for computers were 10 to 120 times higher when they were on… Expand
