Awareness of pollution and its effects on human health have traditionally focused on sources such as factories, combustion power stations and internal combustion engined vehicles.
However, pollution generated inside homes and offices can also be significant - particularly so given the long exposure times spent in these locations.
Emissions from activities such as cooking, vaping, use of solid fuel stoves all have an impact on indoor air quality, and consequent implications for human health.
Cambustion particle and gas instruments offer researchers a range of insights into different aspects of indoor pollution, which can often be highly localised, both in time and space.
An overview of the indoor pollution related to cooking, sitting in a living room with a woodstove, and 3D printing is given in a series of Knowledgebase videos.Particle exposure in the kitchenEmissions from 3D printingSitting in front of a wood stove
