  • Commuting by subway' What you need to know about air quality

    • Authors: Teresa Moreno, Fulvio Amato
      Abstract: Internationally, more than 120 million people commute by subway every day, and this number will keep increasing in the future as the United Nations predicts that 75% of the world’s population will be urban by 2050. On top of being crucial to the mobility of city dwellers, subway systems can also play a pivotal role in reducing outdoor air pollution in large metropolises by helping to reduce motor-vehicle use. However, in response to increasing scientific and public awareness regarding the importance of clean air to human health, several studies have revealed unacceptably high levels of inhalable particulate matter (PM) in some subway systems. This article reviews some of these studies and puts their results in perspective, given World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines concerning safe concentrations of particulate matter in the air. Following on from this, the authors identify some of the key factors influencing subway air pollution and put forward a number of recommendations to h...

  • What do we breathe inside our cars' Characterization of the
           infiltration of pollutants and recommendations

    • Authors: Amine Mehel
      Abstract: A car cabin is a small, enclosed space that is subject to pollutant infiltration or self-emissions. Depending on traffic and ventilation conditions, pollutants can accumulate, exposing passengers and drivers to serious adverse health effects. These pollutants are of different types (gaseous or ultrafine particles) and can reach very high concentrations in comparison with outdoor air.
      Our research is mainly focused on the infiltration process that concerns broad types of pollutants. Since the infiltration process depends on three main factors (concentration of outside pollutants, flow topology at emission points and internal vehicle parameters such as ventilation settings), we conduct on-board and wind tunnel measurements to characterize pollutant dynamics, in interaction with the flow topology. These measurements cover their dispersion from emission sources to their infiltration through air intakes, taking into account the local pollution level.
      Results dealing with dispersion in wi...

  • Pollution Pods: can art change people’s perception of climate change
           and air pollution'

    • Authors: Michael Pinsky, Laura Sommer
      Abstract: The artwork Pollution Pods is part of the Climart project, a wider research program that looks to explore the ways in which art can change people’s perception of climate change. Before presenting the Pollution Pods project itself, Michael Pinsky describes his process of artistic creation and explains how his work engages with the challenge of “representing the invisible”. The conception of Pollution Pods is part of a scientific work studying the type of reaction that climate art can bring about in audiences, thinking specifically about the extent to which artworks lead people not only to reflect on the reality of their daily lives, but also to alter their behaviour.
      With Pollution Pods, the artist hopes to disrupt our embodied experience of pollution, which is generally that of a background phenomenon to which we grow accustomed. To do this, five geodesic domes, five closed physical spaces containing toxic air from different cities around the world, are connected, forcing visitors to...

  • Who owns the air' Emissions trading and contemporary media art

    • Authors: Andrea Polli
      Abstract: The accelerating climate change crisis and the realization that humans are the primary cause of it has raised questions about ownership and responsibility. Who “owns” the climate change crisis and who is responsible for mitigating and reversing it if possible' One overwhelming response by governments on an international level has been to propose a market solution by selling the atmosphere. Is the commercial marketplace the only answer' How can art, technology and media offer alternative cultural practices and open new forms of understanding the air'
      Andrea Polli’s projects Airlight series and Particle falls are animated light projections that reveals the invisible dangers in the air we are breathing. It is a dramatic public artwork that raises awareness of the real time presence and impact of particle pollution.

  • Addressing indoor air pollution challenges through concrete public
           policies in South Korea

    • Authors: Dong Hwa Kang
      Abstract: In this interview, Dr. Kang illustrates some of the ways in which a country can address indoor air quality issues through legislation. Taking South Korea as a case study, the article explores the measures available to governments to ensure efficient control of indoor air quality, and to elaborate a plan for improvement going forward. Through a discussion on public-private interactions, the author shows that indoor air quality is a complex issue that requires an alignment of all policies, market forces and citizens in order to be managed appropriately. By and large, it is the dialogue and transparency between these different actors that ensures that good practices are promoted, and appropriate measures taken. While South Korea seems particularly advanced in orchestrating a response to air quality issues on a national scale, it is hoped that other countries will be inspired by the results achieved and follow suit by drafting innovative legislation on the topic.

  • Public perception of indoor air quality in China, Belgium and France: the
           discovery of an invisible enemy

    • Authors: Laurence Bedeau
      Abstract: Having remained relatively unrecognized by public opinion until the early 2000s, indoor air pollution is now seen by a majority of French, Belgian and also Chinese residents as the probable cause of symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, irritation of the eyes and respiratory tract, and health problems in general. However, the lack of information on indoor air quality in frequently visited enclosed spaces (private premises, workplaces and common areas, transportation) often leads to subjective diagnoses, exacerbated by the difficulty in identifying the sources of indoor air pollution. Nevertheless, it must be regarded as a public health issue, as reflected by growing anxiety among parents about the quality of the air their children breathe inside school buildings, for example. In this context, more robust legislation and standards are considered indispensable in ensuring better prevention and risk assessment.

  • Artificial intelligence and indoor air quality: better health with
           new technologies

    • Authors: Yann Boquillod
      Abstract: Although many people imagine that enclosed spaces offer protection from outdoor pollution, the indoor air is very often contaminated by harmful substances created by everyday household cleaning and cooking activities as well as from outdoor pollution from sources such as vehicles and industry, particularly in the megacities of Asia.
      Founded in 2015 by two French entrepreneurs, AirVisual is a company whose primary mission is to raise awareness of air quality. By offering connected sensors for measuring indoor air quality, the company makes it possible for everybody to optimize their indoor air quality, which in turn limits health risks from exposure to fine particles and excessive concentrations of CO2. In addition, aggregating data from governments, satellite images and outdoor sensors that AirVisual has installed worldwide has enabled the startup to create an interactive world map of air quality on our planet, helping to increase awareness of the importance of air quality and encour...

  • From public perceptions to policymaking: shining light on
           an invisible pollution

    • Authors: Cédric Baecher, Fanny Sohui, Leah Ball, Octave Masson
      Abstract: The keys to scaling up solutions for better air quality lie not only in implementing ambitious policies to provide clean air for all, but also in greater public awareness of the impacts of air pollution on health and the environment. Image 10000000000005DC00000554AFB4048492F46EEC.jpg Promoting good practices An integrated vision of the problem including all stakeholders is essential to ensure better prevention and risk assessment. This is the approach adopted by the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC), whose secretariat, situated in the UN’s Environment office, is led by Helena Molin Valdés. This initiative – whose members include governments, international organizations, research institutions, members of civil society and the private sector – rolls out, supports and promotes innovative solutions for tackling indoor air pollution around the world, with a special focus on poor rural areas. In terms of public policy, some countries are leading the way by enacting standards and procedures that encourage best practices and making syste...

  • A multiparty and global effort to address air pollution around the world

    • Authors: Helena Molin Valdés
      Abstract: The Climate & Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) is an initiative that unites governments, civil society, international organizations, research institutions and the private sector, committed to improve air quality and protecting the climate in the next few decades by reducing short-lived climate pollutants, such as black carbon, methane, HFCs and tropospheric ozone across sectors.
      The CCAC acts as a catalyst to reduce these pollutants and implement and share immediate solutions addressing near-term climate change.
      The CCAC works at identifying, promoting and supporting best initiatives and projects regarding air quality.
      This article presents some exemplary projects improving air quality in rural and underprivileged areas:

      • In Mongolia, the CCAC has provided technical assistance to the Mongolian bank XacBank, in order to study affordable improved technologies for heating, such as electric and solar power;
      • In Nigeria, the CCAC supports a women’s association that has created a network of wo...

  • Using plants and soil microbes to purify indoor air: lessons from NASA and
           Biosphere 2 experiments

    • Authors: Bill C. Wolverton, Mark Nelson
      Abstract: Phytoremediation is the process by which plants and their root microbes remove contaminants from both air and water. Those purifying properties have been discovered within the frame of space habitation experiments: in the 1980s, scientists at the John C. Stennis Space Center shed light on interior plants’ ability to remove volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) from tightly-sealed chambers. Further investigation, including the construction of a dedicated facility, Biohome, led to scientific breakthroughs and helped understand how to maximize interior plants’ ability to purify the air. The experiment showed that indoor plants were able to remove VOCs that were continuously off-gassed in a closed system, thanks to the combined action of plant leaves and root microbes (by metabolization, translocation and/or transpiration).
      Concurrently, the experiments led by Mark Nelson on Biosphere 2 demonstrated that high levels of crop productivity and maintenance of soil fertility can be maintained whi...
