Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are emissions from ordinary household goods. Sources include paint, cleaning products, gasoline, and flooring. Side effects depend on the amount of exposure and VOC concentration in the room. Long-term exposure can lead to liver and kidney damage and problems with the central nervous system. Experts are concerned with VOCs in the air because they form ground-level ozone during reactions with nitrogen oxide. Some products are more friendly to humans and the environment because they reduce the impact of VOCs. Dig deeper → 5 min

Everything from steel companies to street lighting and transportation will be affected, so the evaluation of European dependence on fossil fuels is critical. There is significant hope for a cleaner and more reliable future with sustainable, renewable energy implementation as soon as possible. Dig deeper → 3 min
