Characteristics of VOCs of Industrial Complex in Incheon Area

Ji Ye Yoo, Ji Young Kim, and Chan Jin Park

Abstract—The primary pollutants such as sulfur dioxide and carbon monoxide tend to be gradually improved due to promotion of fuel policy etc. However, secondary pollutants such as ozone and fine dust are getting worse. Hence, it is necessary to strengthen regulations on VOCs.
Incheon city has located large industrial complexes such as export industrial complex, Namdong industrial complex, Incheon mechanical industrial complex, Incheon district industrial complex, Incheon casting industrial complex. These industrial complexes are mainly composed of large-scale manufacturing industries and chemical industries such as machinery, equipment, assembly metal, automobile, and primary metal. However, these industrial complexes are mixed with residential areas in the city center, and it is also a source of odor generation that can cause complaints by odor inducing substances and VOCs.
In this study, in order to it’s investigate the general characteristics of the Namdong industrial complex and the present status of the odor complaints, and we analyzed VOCs items by using the data of photochemical pollutant measurement network operated in the vicinity of industrial complex, and measured the concentration emitted from the odor control facility of the Namdong Industrial Complex and the odor emission control to analyze the current situation.

Index Terms—VOCs, odor, industrial complex, Incheon.
