Everyday an average adult breathes approx. 15.000 to 20.000 litres of air per day, and we spend 90% of our time indoors. This means that indoor air quality has a big impact on our daily lives. Therefore, interventions to prevent and limit air pollutants are important.
Good air quality has a positive effect on health and well-being. Especially children are uniquely vulnerable to environmental contaminants because, relative to their body size, they breathe in more air than adults. Clean air helps people to stay healthy, to be more productive and happy.
