  • Differential impacts of smoke-free laws on indoor air quality

    The authors assessed the impacts of two different smoke-free laws on indoor air quality. They compared the indoor air quality of 10 hospitality venues in Lexington and Louisville, Kentucky, before and after the smoke-free laws went into effect. Real-time measurements of particulate matter with aerodynamic diameter of 2.5 µm or smaller (PM2.5) were made. One Lexington establishment was excluded ...

  • Mathematical modelling of lead assimilation by printing press operators in a poor indoor air quality environment

    Most printing presses in developing countries are located in buildings with inadequate natural and mechanical ventilation such that the press operators work for major hours in poor indoor air quality buildings, which expose them to a wide range of health hazards such as lead poisoning. Understanding how poor air quality affects the operator's body system is studied using a methodology involving ...

  • A mathematical modelling of the intensity of contaminants (CO2) on occupancy level of a space in continuous use

    This study investigates the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) of a room apartment and focused on the number of occupants that a space or an apartment can accommodate as a result of increase in the concentration level of the CO2 contaminant present within the space. The law of mass action was applied to generate a relation between the concentration of CO2 produced and the concentration of the reactants ...

  • Sick-building syndrome and building-related illness

    Significant health problems linked to very poor indoor air qualityIndoor Air Quality (IAQ) deals with the content of interior air that could affect health and comfort of building occupants. The IAQ may be compromised by microbial contaminants (mold, bacteria), chemicals (such as carbon monoxide, radon), allergens, or any mass or energy stressor are more prevalent than anyone could have predicted. ...

  • Technical protocol for evaluating natural attenuation of chlorinated solvents in ground water

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is charged by Congress with protecting the Nation’s land, air, and water resources. Under a mandate of national environmental laws, the Agency strives to formulate and implement actions leading to a compatible balance between human activities and the ability of natural systems to support and nurture life. To meet these mandates, EPA’s research ...

  • Biomass energy outlook

    Over the last three or four weeks, my newsletter, Burning Bio News, has been oddly extreme. Timothy Searchinger, Princeton University, is churning out more antibiofuel hearsay. Dennis Avery, Hudson Institute, was in the news again putting a counter-spin on climate change. The U.S.EPA released its proposed rule for regulation of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) that includes industrial facilities that emit ...
