China's VOC Management and Impact on the Chemical Industry
Sep 09, 2019
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are organic chemicals that have a low boiling point (below 250ºC) at atmospheric pressure. While most of them are not acutely toxic, they are known to have negative long-term effects on human health. According to a study published in 2017, in China the use of VOC-containing products is the main source of VOC emissions, contributing about 75% of total emissions. Other sources are the production of VOCs (10%), the use of VOCs as raw materials (9%) and storage/transportation of VOCs (5%).

Dec 04, 2011
The first law that regulated the safe management of dangerous chemicals in China came into being in 1987 when the so-called Regulations of Chemical Dangerous Goods Safety Management took effect on 2 February. After 15 years’ constant legal improvement, the State Economic and Trade Commission published on 2nd March 2002 a new regulation Decree No. 344 based on the 1987 law. However, due to the reform of governmental institutions and rapid development of hazardous chemical industry, Decree No. 344 began falling short of efficently regulating the hazardous chemicals industry.
