Dr. Simon Curling, researcher at the Bangor University and partner in the ECO-SEE project, was invited to speak about indoor air quality by the BBC on 23 February. Dr. Curling exposed the risks that arise from a lack of ventilation in buildings, caused by the substantial build-up of chemicals released by some materials. To counter the potential dangers of bad indoor air quality to individuals’ health, Dr. Curling insists on the need for ventilation systems that are adapted to the buildings they are used in.

In order to improve the indoor air quality of buildings, the ECO-SEE project studies the use of innovative eco-building materials that will address poor air quality, while also radically improving the energy efficiency of buildings.
