Abstract Special issue devoted to ventilation and air purification at the workplace. Detection and development of hazards associated with polluted atmospheres, explosive atmospheres and hot workplaces; pollution control (collection, dilution, and exhaust of pollutants, purification of polluted air, reduction of thermal stress and physiological strain due to heat and cold, prevention and elimination of explosive atmospheres, monitoring and maintenance of ventilation systems, double-flow pollution control); air conditioning and energy saving (design of industrial buildings and thermal comfort, heating methods at the workplace, economy and recycling of energy). A later issue will be devoted to examples of practical application of these principles.
