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. KEY-VOCs runs under the European Metrology Research Program and it receives European funding.

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

The project aims at:

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

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

I wish you good reading and I hope you will follow our work in the time!
