Volatile Organic Compounds, also called by their acronym VOCs, are chemicals that have a considerably high vapor pressure even in ordinary room temperatures. The high vapor pressure is a result of having a low boiling point, which in turn causes molecules to be released into the air. While not all VOC’s are harmful, there are plenty of VOC’s that are considered hazardous, consequently leading to negative effects on people who are in close proximity or come into contact with the noxious gases, as well as having negative consequences on the environment. Dangerous VOCs are classified as “high Volatile Organic Compounds,” whereas the non-hazardous ones are called “low Volatile Organic Compounds.” Even today, with the finding of green alternative industrial cleaners that have a low VOC count, some industrial companies are still using chemical compounds with a high VOC count, and are placing its workers at risk as well as hurting the environment.
