European Collaborative Action on Urban Air, Indoor Environment and Human Exposure Reports

You are here:
For more than 22 years now the European Collaborative Action ECA "Indoor Air Quality & It's Impact on Man" has been implementing a multidisciplinary collaboration of European scientist the ultimate goal of which was the provision of healthy and environmentally sustainable buildings.  To accomplish this task ECA is dealing with all aspects of the indoor environment including thermal comfort, pollution sources, the quality and quantity of chemical and biological indoor pollutants, energy use, and the ventilation processes which all may interact with indoor air quality.  The work of ECA is directed by a Steering Committee.

In this series the following reports have already been published.
