报告题目：Indoor Air Quality and Its Improving in US Homes
主 持 人：龚光彩
Today’s high performance green homes are reaching previously unheard of levels of airtightness and are using new materials, technologies and strategies, whose impacts on Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) cannot be fully anticipated from prior studies. As high performance new and existing green homes are deployed on a national scale, there are concerns about the potential negative IAQ and health impacts. This report is mainly related to environmental quality and risk reduction in high performance US homes. The ultimate goal of this report is to accelerate the adoption of IAQ, comfort, durability and sustainability measures into new homes and retrofits of existing homes. The report aims to understand the real world processes and systems that affect air pollutant exposures and provide the scientific basis to inform energy and environmental policy.
