||TVOC and CO2 concentrations as indicators in indoor air quality studies
||Jan. 1995, Vol.56, No.1, p.55-65. Illus. 67 ref.
||An indicator for use in investigations of indoor air quality (IAQ) is formulated based on the relationship between the levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) and volatile organic compound (VOC). The indicator is evaluated by case studies involving continuous monitoring in two contrasting office buildings and by a review of published air-quality studies. Results show that bioeffluent and occupation-related emissions often account for a large share of VOC emissions; the suggested indicator clearly shows when other sources are significant. Factors influencing the interpretation of IAQ indicators are discussed.
