Explanations and Imprint of the Map
  1. Organic gases and vapors consist of a multitude of individual substances or groups of substances, some of which represent a high health hazard. In detail the organic gases and vapors include:
    • Organic gases and vapors consist of a multitude of individual substances or groups of substances, some of which represent a high health hazard. In detail the organic gases and vapors include
    • organic oxygen compounds (e.g. formaldehyde);
    • organic nitrogen compounds;
    • organic sulfur compounds.
  2. In addition to the emitters of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides shown in Maps 03.01 and 03.03 the source group of households was included for the area of organic gases and vapors. Considerable quantities of organic gases and vapors are emitted through the release of solvents during use of paints, varnishes, cleansing agents, etc..
  3. The reactivity of the various organic gases and vapors, which is sometimes high, was not taken into consideration in calculating yearly average pollution - for the sake of simplicity they had to be considered stable gases. Therefore the results of the calculations tend to be higher than the sum value of the individual substances measured.
  4. Benzene belongs to the group of aromatic hydrocarbons and is of significance as an air pollutant due to its carcinogenic nature. At present TA-Luft gives no binding maximum values for benzene. A draft Ordinance for Implementation of the Federal Air Pollution Control Act, which is to be implemented in 1998, envisages an yearly average value of 10 µg/m³ to be a threshold for consideration of traffic restriction measures.
  5. In Map 03.08.9 individual monitoring points are shown, extensive pollution cannot directly be deduced.
