Municipal Solid Waste Management is associated with the control of generation, collection, storage, transfer and transport, processing and disposal of solid wastes. Concentration of VOC emissions were measured at major transfer stations of Surat city located in residential areas due to human health and environmental effects as well as on site vehicular activities. VOC are hazardous to human health and also contribute to ozone formation at ground level, responsible for climatic changes as well. VOC emissions were measured considering the spatial and temporal variations and its dispersion will be evaluated using a soft computing technique. A VOC meter was used to carry out VOC measurement which a simple handy tool is becoming popular nowadays. With further refinement, the quantitative analysis of TVOC emission by the VOC analyzer will become an easier, faster and more economical technique than the currently used standard methods.
