If you’re like the typical human, you likely spend about 90% of your time inside. Our homes, businesses, exercise facilities, cars, and gathering places are all examples of indoor environments where we’re constantly breathing the air. Therefore, it is crucial to understand the chemistry occurring in these spaces and what it means to our health and well-being.
Among the many sources of pollution in indoor environments are human beings themselves. Emissions via breath and skin represent mobile, potent, chemically diverse and highly variable sources of reactive chemicals in indoor spaces. The project ICHEAR aims to comprehensively characterize the chemical impact of human beings, the single common element in all living spaces.
ISIAQ STC 11 (Sources, Monitoring and Evaluation: Chemical Pollutants) have hosted webinars to increase communication within the STC11 and expanding our outreach. The upcoming webinar will be on the topic of “New instrumentation/monitoring techniques for faster knowledge”.
