1 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.

2 Air Pollution Control Technologies

3 Lecture 29 Indoor Air Quality (Air Quality III)

4 Indoor Air Quality  Topics Covered Include:  Discussion of common pollutants of concern  Importance of Ventilation  Design options for healthier environments

5 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

6 Global vs US Domestically, indoor air pollution is also a challenge -chemical usage -insulated spaces -mold BUT…conditions are generally pretty good Earth911.com

7 Who Regulates? Workplace – Occupational Safety and Health Administration thetidalwaveofdifference.com

8 Who Regulates? Residential – largely unregulated (departments of health)

9 Who Regulates? However, what comes in is generally regulated….

10 Common Pollutants Radon Volatile organic carbons Asbestos Respirable particulate matter Formaldehyde Carbon monoxide Tabacco smoke Pesticides Mold

11 Importance of Ventilation Houses that do not leak can trap pollutants Important to circulate air from outside into house Need for moisture control

12 The Pollution Within Gupta Air Quality in Schools Discuss Reading Addyston Air Quality in Schools (2 part series)
