What is CH2O/HCHO and why does it need to be measured?

Written as either CH20 or HCHO, it a poisonous substance found in different forms and is commonly known as formaldehyde. As a gas it is colorless and has a pungent irritating odor. It is readily soluble in water and is often used as a disinfectant and biological preservative.

In the chemical industry formaldehyde is predominently used as a chemical intermediate and is ultimately distributed to a wide variety of other industries such as Construction and Building, Fertilizers, Insulation, Wood Production and more for use in their respective products.

Formaldehyde is considered to be carcinogenic and can enter the body via inhalation, ingestion or directly through the skin. Because of it's hazardous nature it is a regulated substance and laws regarding the proper reporting, handling and disposal of it are discussed in the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, Clean Water Act, Toxic Substances Control Act and Clean Air Act.
