Re: Environmental Standards of IKEA Products- The Numbers

My specific question concerns the type of formaldehyde in the particleboard that IKEA uses - whether it is urea or phenol. I am giving a presentation on sustainable composite wood products and would like to tell the audience what type of formaldehyde is specifically used in the kitchen cabinets. Urea is not okay, phenol is. I have found zero literature concerning this point and have even, coincidentally, talked with a sales person at the store in Seattle about this who had done a research paper on formaldehyde/IKEA. She couldn't tell me either. Since the WHO lists formaldehyde in general as a known carcinogen I would love to see IKEA phase it out all together as a binder in ther products, universally.

Re: Environmental Standards of IKEA Products- The Numbers

I have tracked through many of the threads on this blog and am having quite a time to truly gain a clear and definitive answer regarding a couple questions. They are:

Do the ikea kitchen cabinets contain formaldehyde? Yes or No. If yes, how much?

They follow-up questions: The National Association of Home Builders and the United States Green Building Council reference GGPS.EC.010.R0 and ASTM D6670. Is Ikea in compliance with these standards?

Since these are the two leading sustainable construction and home building organizations in the US, is IKEA addressing these organizations and requirements specifically?

Thank you -
