  Indoor Air Pollution Numerous forms of indoor air pollution are possible in the modern home. Air pollutant levels in the home increase if not enough outdoor air is brought in to dilute emissions from indoor sources and to carry indoor air pollutants out of the home.   Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are often considered among the more important indoor pollutants, because of by their continue emission from many sources and their diffusion properties. With the aim to evaluate the occupants’ discomfort and health effects and in order to develop guidelines and standards, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) assessment and control is an essential by: 1. population. However, the use of charcoal is associated with indoor air pollution where charcoal users are continually exposed to compounds of incomplete combustion which are known to have detrimental effects to human health. This study analyzed the emission profiles of different types of domestically used charcoal produced byAuthor: Tom Justus Shikorire. sources • list 10 sources of indoor air contaminants • identify three meteorological factors that affect the dispersal of air pollutants ChAPtEr OutLinE I.

The characterization of the emission sources and tracers was obtained by mean of a number of site inspections and measurement campaigns held between and In the last campaign, held in January , chemical odour tracers (H 2 S, NH 3, VOC) and dynamic olfactometry measurements were performed simultaneously. Based upon proximity of the source to the human receptor, there is a rule of ; this means that for inhalation intake, 1 g of indoor emission is roughly equivalent to g of outdoor emissions in terms of intake of mass. More details on the intake fraction have . This chapter discusses the emissions of air pollutants form various sources, including from stationary and mobile sources, as well as from personal sources. Combustion is considered from the perspective of its contribution to air pollution, especially the emissions of products of incomplete combustion.

Conclusion, and References relating to an October conference at the John B. Pierce Laboratory and Yale University, New Haven, purpose of a May international conference on indoor source characterization, held at Chapel Hill, North Carolina, was to stimulate research on chemical and physical characterization of emissions. Indoor Air Quality Air Pollution occurs when a substance that has harmful or poisonous effects contaminates the air. It is a serious danger to the environment, but also a major public health issue. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 7 million people died as a result of Air Pollution exposure in , namely 1 in 8 deaths worldwide. manage the characterization and cleanup of mines sites. Users are encouraged to consider the information presented in the Handbook against the backdrop of site specific environmental and regulatory factors. The Handbook has been developed as a source of information and ideas for project managers involved in the characterization.
