Metrology for VOC indicators in air pollution and climate change

Welcome to the website of the KEY-VOCs project!

This three year project was launched on the 1st of October 2014 and it ended on the 30th of September 2017. KEY-VOCs was part of the European Metrology Research Program and it received European funding.

Together with VSL, the project coordinator, another 9 EU National Metrology Institutes and 3 Researchers Excellence Grants worked side by side in research activities related to air quality and to atmospheric monitoring.

The project objectives were:

  1. Providing traceable and comparable VOC reference gas standards
  2. Validating new measurement systems (sensors-based) for benzene

so that the air monitoring networks could improve the reliability and comparability of the measurement results and get a better understanding of the gas sensing devices potentials.
