Title = Emissions from building materials during their using period - A life cycle assessment 
Abstract = Different kinds of flooring materials were investigated regarding emission of volatile organic compounds (VOC). The emission were measured with a small chamber device, Field and Laboratory Emission Cell (FLEC), at different times for a period of six months to two years depending of type of material. The goal of the study was to evaluate different flooring materials regarding their total emission during their entire using period. The results shows that there are large differences between materials, such as wood and PVC, both in total emission and in decay patterns. There are also large differences within groups.
