CE Introduction to Environmental Engineering and Science Readings for This Class: The Pollution Within O hio N orthern U niversity Introduction Chemistry, Microbiology & Material Balance Water & Air Pollution Env Risk Management Indoor Air Pollution We spend most of our day inside. Therefore, the quality of our indoor air has a greater impact on our health than outside air. This lecture introduces students to indoor air pollution.
Air Pollution Control Technologies
Lecture 29 Indoor Air Quality (Air Quality III)
Indoor Air Quality Topics Covered Include: Discussion of common pollutants of concern Importance of Ventilation Design options for healthier environments
Global vs US Globally, indoor air pollution is a major problem -unsanitary conditions -smoke from indoor open fire cooking -lack of controls in factory environments
Global vs US Domestically, indoor air pollution is also a challenge -chemical usage -insulated spaces -mold BUT…conditions are generally pretty good Earth911.com
