On December 11, 2019, the gas TVOC value of organic volatiles in Shimei Bay garbage dump was as high as 500. The value was detected by the owner of Shimei Bay Huarun Community in Wanning, Hainan Province.

As long as there is little concern about indoor air pollution, people will have heard the term TVOC, but many people do not know what TVOC is, they just know that TVOC is harmful to human bodies. Researchers of indoor air quality often refer to all indoor organic gaseous substances they sample for analysis as TVOC, which is the general term for the various VOCs measured. TVOC is the most serious of the three kinds of indoor air quality pollution. The boiling point of TVOC is between 50℃ and 250℃. It exists in the air in the form of evaporation at room temperature. Its toxicity, irritability, carcinogenicity and special odor will affect the skin and mucous membrane, causing acute damage to the human bodies.

The residents of Shimei Bay Huarun Community have lived in such a bad environment for a long time. The consequences are unimaginable.
