Indoor air quality future scenarios report

This report surveys current knowledge on the effect of indoor air pollution on people’s health and projects how increased levels of energy efficiency and air-tightness of UK dwellings, to meet emissions targets, will impact on pollution levels and health up to 2050 if there is no additional IAQ intervention, over and above existing requirements. Key projections include:

  • an 80% increase in asthma sufferers from current levels
  • TVOC concentrations up to 60% above WHO 24 hour limits
  • NO2 concentrations up to 30% above WHO annual limits
