Indoor Air: under-estimated pollutants

Indoor air

While some sources of indoor air pollution are well known, there are others that researchers do not yet fully understand. This is the case for cleaning products and essential oils. The volatile organic compounds (VOCs) they become and their dynamics within buildings are being studied by chemists at IMT Lille …

CUBAIR: a prototype for purifying indoor air

CUBAIR : un prototype pour purifier l’air intérieur

Improving indoor air quality? That’s what the CUBAIR project aims to do. By developing a new treatment system, researchers have managed to significantly reduce fine particle concentration and nitrogen oxides.   An important reminder: indoor air is often more polluted than outdoor air. In addition to the automobile exhaust and …

What is a volatile organic compound (VOC)?

VOC, Volatile organic compound

Pollution in urban areas is a major public health issue. While peaks in the concentration of fine particles often make the news, they are not the only urban pollutants. Volatile organic compounds, or VOC, also present a hazard. Some are carcinogenic, while others react in the atmosphere, contributing to the …

Air quality: several approaches to modeling the invisible

qualité de l'air, modélisation, air quality, modeling

The theme day on air quality modeling (organized by FIMEA and IMT Lille Douai) on June 8 provided an opportunity for researchers in this field to exchange on existing methods. Modeling makes it possible to identify the link between pollution sources and receptors. These models help provide an understanding of atmospheric …
