 Indoor air quality

Air pollution in confined spaces is an important public health issue, with significant social and economic implications. The high concentration of contaminants in such environments has a negative - albeit not acute - impact on the health and wellbeing of people, especially in case of long periods of exposure.  The European commissions have established guideline values for the main indoors pollutants. 

Germany, France, Holland, Finland, Belgium and Italy have started monitoring and sampling the key indoor pollutants. On the matter of Indoor Air Quality, the World Health Organisation (WHO), the Italian National Health Institute, the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), the Scientific Committee on Health and Environmental Risks (SCHER), and the European Commission for Science and Technology have concluded that it is necessary to reduce the sources of contaminations as well as the concentrations of the pollutants included in the shared European list.
