Experts in Indoor Air Quality: Addressing IAQ Impacts to Improve Human Health
TRACK: Materials Health

With a focus on indoor air quality (IAQ), a collection of expert panelists will address one of the most pressing issues in the industry today -- human health as effected by pollutants that contaminate our indoor environments. IAQ requirements have found their way into most certifications, all with slightly differing thresholds and measurement methodologies. This panel will delve into these differences and discuss the main culprits contributing to poor IAQ, various IAQ monitoring techniques, new studies released from respected Universities, and showcase exciting case studies employing new IAQ technologies.
