The AIVC workshop: “Is ventilation the answer to indoor air quality control in buildings? Do we need performance-based approaches? will take place in Brussels, Belgium on 14-15 March, 2017. The event aims to identify the pros and cons of performance-based approaches and metrics that can be considered to assess the indoor air quality (IAQ) performance of ventilation systems, as well as to draft guidelines for their use in standards and regulations.

38th AIVC - 6th TightVent & 4th venticool Conference, 2017 | Ventilating healthy low-energy buildings   The need to reduce the energy demand of buildings is reflected in the legislation and policies of many countries. However, there is increasing concern about their adverse effects on occupant health and comfort in low energy buildings. These issues are being considered by some international energy conservation policy initiatives for buildings that seek to simultaneously reduce energy demand and provide acceptable indoor environment quality.

Over the years, different approaches and indices have been used to define indoor air quality. The most frequently used, recognised by the public, and equated with indoor air quality are, of course, ventilation rate and concentration of carbon dioxide. Other approaches define the levels of dissatisfaction with acceptability of indoor air quality, as expressed by the building occupants. At some point in time, the total concentration of airborne volatile organic compounds was proposed, as well.
