Field campaign characterization of incense and candle emissions in indoor environment

Abstract : Burning incense and scented candles indoors has been shown as a punctual but significant source of volatile and particulate compounds. The purpose of this paper is to present the results of testing emissions from incense and candles burning under realistic conditions in the CSTB experimental house. Particular effort was given to the use of adequate on-line and off-line measurement techniques to precisely describe volatile and particulate compounds emitted during combustions of those products. This information is particularly relevant for the implementation of the labelling of emissions from candles and incense and for risk assessment studies related to the use of those products.
