Ambient hydrocarbons from motor-car assembly plants in Scandinavia

About 50 air-polluting hydrocarbons were determined in emissions from the Volvo and Saab motor-car plants. The sampling technique used was based on the Tenax GC adsorbent. Thermal desorption and glass capillary gas chromatography was used for the analysis. At a downwind distance of about 1 km, concentrations about 100 times higher than regional levels were recorded. The emissions constitute potential ecological and health hazards and a reduction of quantities and complexity is urgent.

Nyckelord: automotive industry, paints, solvents, air pollutants, plumes, xylene, toluene, environment

The hydrocarbon emissions from Volvo in particular was a major issue in media and politics in Göteborg and Sweden when this study was performed. Specific determinations of the hydrocarbons far outside the plant added a new dimension to the problem.

During the following years Volvo started up an early and increasingly ambitious environmental policy.
