Children are spending more and more time inside buildings and the indoor air quality can affect their health. In fact, air pollution has been linked to serious health conditions, such as cancer, asthma and cardiovascular diseases.   The indoor air quality changes according to the building, the occupants, and the type of activities taking place inside. The main way people are exposed is by inhaling pollutants, but they can also be ingested or absorbed through the skin. This set of complex factors include:

A revised EU directive to fight energy poverty and pulmonary diseases due to unhealthy buildings should be approved this month   Home sweet home. Houses are supposed to be our nest, a shelter from the world outside. But how healthy are European homes?   Nowadays most of our time is spent indoors, often at home, one reason being the current shift to “desk jobs”. It follows that the environment of the buildings we live, work and play in has a major health impact.

Eco-innovative, Safe and Energy Efficient wall panels and materials for a healthier indoor environment     The ECO-SEE project aims to address an emerging health problem associated with modern low carbon buildings. Modern buildings have been developed to be very airtight, improving their energy efficiency and reducing their carbon footprint. However, these sealed environments have created unexpected side effects, with research showing that a build-up of potentially harmful chemicals in the air is potentially causing negative impacts on occupants.

With energy efficiency in buildings high up on the European political agenda, Brussels is certainly the place where awareness about the importance of energy performance buildings is prominent. But less people might be aware of how much indoor air quality needs to be improved. Indoor air is 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoors, because of mould and bacteria resulting from excessive levels of humidity, and pollutants such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released by furniture, cleaning products and textiles.
