Volatile organic compound (VOC) screening of packaging materials (extended package)

Screening of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from paper, board, and plastics. The method can be used to analyze volatile residues from printed packaging as well as to measure the decontamination efficacy of the recycling process (e.g., rPET, recycled fibers).
