What are emissions?

In the indoor atmosphere they mostly emanate from freshly applied lacquers and paints, adhesives insulation systems and other building materials. They are most eminent shortly after the application of certain products but can persist in the air for days and months after the materials have been installed. Emissions are defined as, "Volatile Organic Compounds" (VOCs).
