Low VOC Chemicals is a composition that helps to reduce the use of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). They are a non-profit company with the goal of creating sustainable communities by reducing VOC emissions. Low VOC Chemicals reach their goals by implementing green building practices, providing access to green building products, and promoting green lifestyle choices.
The best way to protect the environment is to use low-VOC chemicals. But what are they? A low-volatile organic compound (low VOC) contains fewer than ten carbon atoms, has a boiling point of less than 160°C or has a flashpoint of less than 23°A. Nonvolatile organic compounds are usually high in toxicity and difficult to break down, but low-VOCs don’t release irritating vapors.
Low VOC Chemicals also emit less carbon dioxide into the air, which helps to lower greenhouse gas emissions. Reducing our carbon footprint often encourages us to recycle and reuse in order to save energy and create a greener lifestyle for generations to come.
