EVIDENCE DRIVEN INDOOR AIR QUALITY IMPROVEMENT

Descrizione del progetto

Monitoraggio scientifico dell’inquinamento al chiuso

I pericoli legati all’inquinamento dell’aria all’interno di edifici e ambienti circostanti sono stati oggetto di maggiore attenzione durante la pandemia di COVID-19, poiché le persone erano costrette a trascorrere molte ore al chiuso. Tuttavia, nonostante il grave e complesso impatto della qualità dell’aria interna sulla salute e sul benessere umano, c’è molto ancora da scoprire. Per colmare questa lacuna, il progetto EDIAQI, finanziato dall’UE, si occuperà della ricerca delle fonti chimiche e biologiche dell’inquinamento dell’aria interna, della quantificazione delle loro proprietà e delle loro vie di esposizione e dispersione in diverse città europee. L’obiettivo è quello di promuovere un’attenzione scientifica avanzata, su piccola scala e ad alta intensità, e un monitoraggio a lungo termine degli inquinanti bersaglio dell’aria interna che permetta, per la prima volta, di trovare soluzioni scientifiche per la qualità della stessa.

Obiettivo

Indoor air pollution, an emerging threat recognized by European society, is claiming millions of lives annually. In the heat of current COVID-19 pandemic, elevated exposure to indoor air pollutants due to increased time spent indoors further faces a significant increase in negative effect on both physical and mental health and well-being not only in Europe, but also worldwide. When it comes to indoor air quality itself, serious knowledge gaps remain in understanding complex nature of indoor-outdoor pollution relationships, pollution sources and exposure pathways, health effects of emerging pollutants, ventilation of indoor spaces on wide spatial and long temporal scales. This is mainly because air quality monitoring in European Union (EU) is primarily focused on outdoor air quality, which paradoxically is a result of regulatory target compliances, which is lacking for indoor environments. To increase the resilience of EU for emerging threats of indoor air pollution and to promote living and working in healthy environments, project EDIAQI aims at conducting characterization of sources and routes of exposure and dispersion of chemical, biological, and emerging indoor air pollution in multiple cities in EU. Quantification of the main properties of pollutants and processes that governs its fate in indoor environments will be investigated on two levels: a) the-state-of-the-art, small-scale, high-intensity scientific focus measurement campaigns; and b) long-term, large-scale monitoring of target indoor air pollutants. The chosen project strategy for developing, characterization, and deployment of cost-effective/user-friendly monitoring solutions, together with the-state-of-the-art scientific instrumentation will allow to create new knowledge on sources, routes of exposure, and body burdens of indoor multipollutant.
