We usually ventilate our homes by opening windows or by using automatic ventilation but is this incoming air really that fresh? Or do we only make it worse by bringing in polluted outdoor air? Smart ventilation controlled by indoor and outdoor air quality, air purification in ventilation systems or in coatings on walls and windows, green facades that purify incoming air, a network of sensors that measure air quality online, ... The possibilities for the improvement of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) are numerous and diverse but until now only rarely applied in practice. This workshop will define the problem and discuss the most important indoor pollutants, give an overview of what to measure and how to do it and pitch several technologies that can aid to purify indoor air.

Date: Tuesday April 20th 2021, 10:00 - 12:00
