The mission of IEQ-GA is to provide an acceptable indoor environmental quality (thermal environment-indoor air quality-lighting-acoustic) to occupants in buildings and places of work around the world and to make sure the knowledge from research on IEQ get to be implemented in practice. >> Read more…
The 41st AIVC & ASHRAE IAQ joint Conference “IAQ 2020: Indoor Environmental Quality Performance Approaches Transitioning from IAQ to IEQ” will be held from the 14th to the 16th of September 2020 in Athens, Greece together with the 9th TightVent and the 7th venticool conferences. Abstract submission is now open.
A 4-1/2 day course that covers both basic and advanced topics related to industrial ventilation including: the behavior of air and chemical contaminants in the air; industrial process exhaust system design (including ACGIH® calculation methods); make-up and supply air ventilation systems; dilution ventilation systems; selection and design of exhaust hoods, ducts, and fittings; fans and air cleaners (including Fan Laws); troubleshooting and testing of existing systems; and hands-on testing and measurements.
Course contains 32 hours of instruction and may be eligible for ABIH CM credit and/or BCSP recertification points. See the ABIH (www.abih.org) and/or the BCSP (www.bcsp.org) websites for credit criteria.

A new article in the August 2016 issue of The Synergist addresses the potential human health effects of wildfire smoke and residues. The article illustrates some of the uncertainties that must be addressed when evaluating human health risk from wildfire residuals, including the composition of the wildfire smoke inside a home; concentration of chemical constituents in the smoke; fate and transport of persistent wildfire residual chemicals in the interior environment; and the effects of ventilation and housekeeping practices on contaminant deposition and removal rates. The Synergist is the monthly magazine of the American Industrial Hygiene Association.
