Authored by Olivier Martimort from NanoSense and published in January 2023, this report delves into the origins of indoor air pollution while outlining a strategy to mitigate pollutants while managing energy consumption. The focus is on primary pollutants such as CO2, VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), and PM (Particulate Matter), along with nine additional pollutants. The report emphasizes the adverse health effects of these pollutants, with poor indoor air quality being linked to nine million global deaths annually. Strategies for detection and reduction are detailed, including on-demand ventilation, which boasts a 70% energy savings compared to continuous fan operation.
