Abstract: The KEY-VOCs project is a EURAMET joint research project focused on key Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in air. One of its activities is the evaluation of sensors-based measurement systems. In Europe, the monitoring of benzene in ambient air is mandatory as set by the European Directive for air quality (AQD) [1]. This Directive states that the reference method of measurement shall consist of active or on-line sampling followed by gas chromatography [2]. These methods are time consuming, expensive to implement and not easily portable prohibiting more local estimation of the population exposure. However, the AQD allows using indicative measurements with higher uncertainty than those of the reference methods. Sensor systems are good candidates for indicative methods with the additional ability of near-to real-time measurements.
