Introduction

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.

Indoor Air Quality

Topics Covered Include:

Discussion of common pollutants of concern

Importance of Ventilation

Design options for healthier environments


Ce 3231 introduction to environmental engineering and science

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


Ce 3231 introduction to environmental engineering and science

Global vs US

  • Domestically, indoor air pollution is also a challenge

  • chemical usage

  • insulated spaces

  • mold

  • BUT…conditions are

  • generally pretty good
