Abstract

In this survey we try to estimate the emission of VOC on the basis of statistical data of fuel consumption and emission factors taken from the literature. In Hungary, the total VOC emissions for 1986 were estimated to be 438.6 million kg. It is shown that solvent evaporation and traffic are the most significant anthropogenic sources, while forests are the greatest natural contributors to VOC emissions.
