SurprisingIn the recent PhD study on “Mould growth in buildings”, carried out at NTNU (Norwegian University of Science and Technology), researcher Jonas Holme at SINTEF Building and Infrastructure has suggested different approaches on how to increase the knowledge of mould growth in buildings, and possible links between mould growth and health effects in humans.

The Zero Carbon Hub Ventilation and Air Quality (VIAQ) Taskgroup’s interim report is now available. It considers air quality in the context of the projected increase in use of MVHR systems in new-build homes. The report calls for a better evidence base for installed performance of MVHR, a more robust approach to designing and installing systems, and better advice for users. The report also gives special attention to source control of indoor pollutants, which has a relevance regardless of the ventilation system.

ISIAQ was founded in 1992 by 109 international scientists and practitioners following the 5th International Conference on Indoor Air Quality and Climate, Indoor Air '90 (Toronto, 1990). It is an international, independent, multidisciplinary, scientific, non-profit organization whose purpose is to support the creation of healthy, comfortable and productivity-encouraging indoor environments.

Studies have shown that about 10 percent of the energy consumed in the U.S. commercial buildings is used to thermally condition ventilation air. In order to improve a building's energy efficiency, the idea is to reduce ventilation rates while maintaining good air quality—or better yet, to do so while improving indoor air quality.To read the complete article, please click here.
