Event Description



IAQ in Airports

Increasing awareness about Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and IAQ related issues (human comfort, human health, increased litigation) have caused many building codes and standards to address the real needs of occupants.  Prescriptive standards recommend minimum ventilation rates for acceptable IAQ as defined in ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2004Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality but with the caveat that outdoor air (OA) must be of acceptable quality.
In this regard, airport applications present a unique and immediate concern to the health of many occupants.  Primarily, airport structures must contend with many of the internally generated contaminants found in commercial buildings.  Similarly, airports must also deal with many of the outdoor air contaminants associated with urban centers.  Finally, typical airport activities also contribute a large number of pollutants that can degrade the quality of outdoor air event further.
ASHRAE Standard 62, in its current form, employs two procedures to provide acceptable indoor air quality (IAQ) in buildings.  These are the Ventilation Rate and Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Procedures.  This standard further endeavors to achieve the necessary balance between IAQ and energy consumption by specifying minimum ventilation rates and IAQ that will be acceptable to human occupants.
This presentation will focus on the use of gas-phase air filtration to specifically address many of the problems encountered in modern airports.  It will cover the requirements for using this procedure, the information required, and it will describe several projects where this procedure was successfully implemented.
