We are all heavily exposed to indoor air, as we spend almost 90% of our time in confined spaces, such as buildings or transports.
Moreover, many recent scientific studies show that indoor air is often more polluted than the outdoor air, even in an urban environment. The two main reasons are the presence of many emissive materials as source of indoor pollution as well as an excessive confinement resulting from energy saving concerns.
As a consequence, there is an accumulation of pollutants in confined indoor environments that leads to potentially harmful situations. For example, many studies describe the development of symptomatic diseases, such as MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivity) or “sick building syndrome” as well as various types of allergies.
