European database for indoor air pollution sources in buildings

This project, involving a large number of partners, sought to bring together in one place knowledge relating to the strength of indoor pollution sources, and establish the necessary ventilation rates which would provide both for an energy-efficient operation, and com-fortable conditions in buildings.

Construction materials only recently were identified as major sources for indoor air contamination. This project aims to work towards a better definition of adequate ventilation rates to guarantee energy-efficient building and good indoor air quality (IAQ). Quantifying the strength of materials as pollution sources and introducing that data in appropriate models will contribute to a better design and management of buildings and systems.
