Abstract

This study was accomplished to recognize the present condition of Hazardous Air Pollutants(HAPs) in new apartments and to examine efficiently carcinogenic and non-carcinogenic health effects for residents through health risk assessment from June, 2004 to May, 2005. Target pollutants were 5 carcinogenic HAPs that are benzene, carbon tertachloride, chloroform, 1,2-dichloroethane, and formaldehyde and 7 non-carcinogenic HAPs that are 1,4-dichlorobenzene, 1,2-dichloropropane, ethylbenzene, styrene, toluene, m,p-xyrene, and o-xyrene. Total cancer risk of carcinogenic pollutants for case of male in new apartments was 1.98×105 and for female was 4.72×105 exceeded the permitted standards. Total hazard index of non-carcinogenic pollutants for male in new apartments was 7.1×10-1 and for female were 1.5, respectively.
