Abstract

This paper analyzed volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the ambient air of a secondary fiber paper mill. The compositions and quantities of VOCs were determined by the gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) method and the photo-ionisation detector (PID), respectively. The total concentrations of TVOC and the main identified kinds of substances on the four sites of paper mill were as follows: (1) waste paper sorting room: TVOC concentration was 1.18 mg·m-3, which exceeded the standard 0.97 multiples; the main detected pollutants were alkanes, phenols, and esters; (2) papermaking workshop: TVOC concentration was 207.75 mg·m-3, which exceeded the standard 345.25 multiples; the main detected pollutants were benzene series, alkanes, ethers, and phenols; (3) vacuum pump outlet: TVOC concentration was 4.78 mg·m-3, which exceeded the standard 6.97 multiples; the main detected pollutants were benzene series and phenols; and (4) office area: TVOC concentration was 0.63 mg·m-3, which exceeded the standard 0.05 multiples; the main detected pollutants were benzene series and phenols.
