IDMEC is an R&D institute associated with FEUP for R&D in mechanical engineering and with links to the national R&D system of which it is formally part. IDMEC has been involved since 1988 in EU projects sponsored by DG RTD (JOULE) and DG TREN (THERMIE). These projects had an important role in the R&D of EU in relation with the building thermal performance (PASSYS, PASCOOL) and indoor air quality (IAQ Audit, European DataBase on Indoor Pollution Sources, AIRLESS, MATHIS, HOPE). Recently IDMEC was the coordinator of the European Project of 6th FWP EnVIE (Co-ordination Action on Indoor Air Quality and Health Effects) that led to the proposition of a set of policies including the preparation of a Green Paper on IAQ (www.envieiaq.eu). IDMEC has the Laboratory for Indoor Air Quality through which national contacts with the Industry developed. This laboratory focuses on studies on indoor air quality evaluation in buildings and on the development of clean building materials in support to manufacturing industry.

for a Healthy Indoor Life


While AIRLOG does not aim to solve current gaps in the scientific evidence of IAQ health risks (SCHER Committee), it aims at:

Helping auditors improve their audits

Helping clients better understand the IAQ control and maintenance processes

Improving IAQ control in EU buildings

AIRLOG is designed to provide comprehensive state-of-the-art guidance for managing and diagnosing IAQ in buildings, and
ultimately becoming a Good Practices Digital Guide in EU IAQ.



The Indoor Air Quality

Indoor exposure to air pollutants occurs in all indoor environments. Due to the complexity of indoor air pollution and its variability over time, a precise estimation of associated risks is a challenging task.

A European Problem

Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) is the main cause for the problem known as Sick Building Syndrome (SBS). The World Health Organization (WHO) considers SBS as a modern plague that undermines the health and productivity of building occupants.

30% of EU buildings suffer from SBS

The Scientific Committee on Health and Environmental Risks stated in 2007 that a comprehensive review of the
existing data on the indoor air pollutants, as well as the set up of a pan European database, is required. Currently there is no
existing solution to assist field engineers in IAQ audits
in buildings at EU level, and no standard EU technical management platform devoted to IAQ audits.



benefits


· A virtual management platform that will create an objective, measurement-based framework for indoor air quality audits in buildings.

· The database will be a repository of important value, as it will combine exposure data bases, standardization requirements, harmonization and cooperation across Europe, examples on multidisciplinary approaches, and concrete data on specific measures, among other data.

· A web-based IAQ audit support and decision support system will offer up-to-date support, training and knowledge on IAQ audits and management systems.
