Promoting formaldehyde-free panels for a healthier living environment in Singapore


In recent years, global concern over indoor air quality has risen sharply, with particular focus on the dangers posed by formaldehyde emissions. As Singapore continues to evolve architecturally and socially, there is an urgent need to prioritise the safety and health of the people who inhabit the spaces we design and live in. This is urgently needed in everything from educational institutions to healthcare facilities, and from residential to commercial buildings.



Formaldehyde is a volatile organic compound (VOC) commonly found in building materials such as composite wood products, paints and adhesives. While formaldehyde has a variety of industrial uses, prolonged exposure to formaldehyde can cause adverse health effects, especially respiratory health. The World Health Organization (WHO) has clearly highlighted the hazards of formaldehyde emissions to human respiratory health and the high risk of leukaemia that can result.

To address this pressing issue, it has become imperative to promote formaldehyde-free and low volatile organic compound (VOC) panels. These panels do not release harmful substances and are a positive solution to safeguarding indoor air quality and promoting a healthier living environment.

For critical environments

Nurseries, schools, hospitals and existing homes are key environments where the promotion of formaldehyde-free panels is essential. These places house vulnerable groups including children, the elderly and individuals with pre-existing health problems, making them particularly susceptible to the adverse effects of indoor air pollution. The home, on the other hand, is the environment where the nation rests and spends the most time.

By advocating for the widespread use of formaldehyde-free panels in these locations, we can not only reduce respiratory health risks. In addition, in the realm of renovation projects, closed environments amplify the concentration of airborne pollutants, making the use of formaldehyde-free panels imperative to safeguard the health and well-being of occupants and construction workers.

Architectural Requirements

As stewards of the built environment, architects are influential in shaping the trajectory of sustainable design practices. It is therefore incumbent upon architectural organisations and professionals to prioritise the incorporation of formaldehyde-free panels into their design concepts.

Architects can work with local suppliers who advocate the production of formaldehyde-free panels to customise solutions based on their clients’ unique needs and aesthetic preferences. This synergy between architectural innovation and environmental stewardship not only advances the debate on sustainable building practices, but also emphasises the ethical responsibility of architects to prioritise the health and well-being of their occupants.
