Traffic pollution in office buildings drives innovative indoor-outdoor air quality management

Extensive research has shown that indoor air quality is often worse than outdoors. Closed system buildings trap harmful particles inside, and external air intakes can bring in more polluted air from outside. Whilst many heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems (HVAC) use particle filtering, managed through air exchanges, they can often worsen levels of polluting …

Upplands Motor in Stockholm compares air quality indoor and outdoor

Two AQMesh pods were used to measure NO, NO2, O3 and CO during May and June 2017 at the largest combined Volvo, Ford and Renault car dealer in Stockholm, Sweden, located on the highway between Stockholm city centre and Arlanda airport. The objective was to measure the air quality outside and inside the combined showroom and workshop, demonstrating the importance of measuring common traffic-related pollutants indoors as well as outdoors. The project was also to assess the suitability of AQMesh for this application, including ease of installation and relocation.
