Gases can form in between soil particles and make their way to the surface. Gases like methane, volatile organic compounds and carbon dioxide can be harmful, especially if they concentrate in a small area. For this reason, construction projects on brownfield and other risk areas must install gas protection systems to protect building users from possible soil gases.
