A year long study of ambient air concentrations of benzene around a service station

21 Jan 1996

This report describes the results obtained from measurements of ambient benzene levels around a single service station in the UK over a one year period. Continuous sampling was achieved using diffusion tubes and results compared with those from intermittent active sampling using pumps and adsorption tubes. Results obtained around the service station were compared with those from a corresponding “greenfield site” in the same local area.
