Due to changes in lifestyle, people spend more time indoors.
This refers not only to the time spent at home and at office
premises, but also in shopping malls, recreation centers and
transport vehicles. Concentrations of many pollutants are higher
indoors than they are outdoors. Consequently, the indoor
environment has a bigger impact on human health, well being and
Indoor Environment Engineering is a relatively new scientific
discipline with an interdisciplinary character, using knowledge
from chemistry, biology, medicine and engineering. Since the early
1990s, the number of studies in this area has grown significantly
from research on indoor air parameters, new emerging pollutants in
indoor air, energy saving systems of heating, to studies on
ventilation and air-conditioning in buildings. Even though much
progress has been made since then, a number of questions still
- How can indoor air quality be measured? What are reliable,
time- and cost-efficient methods?
- How can indoor air quality be improved, investing as little
energy as possible?
- How to minimize secondary pollution caused by air supply
- Which type of pollutants should research focus on?
- In what way are we exposed to new pollutants (plasticizers,
?ame retardants, pesticides)? What is their impact on our
Management of Indoor Air Quality is a collection of 14 peer
reviewed papers in Indoor Environment Engineering addressing the
above issues. It includes research on HVAC impact on aerosol
levels, new ventilation systems as well as air quality problems in
new environments. The volume is intended for scientists, engineers,
post-graduate and graduate students interested in the area of
