    STP 1287 features state of the art information from leading experts in the field on indoor air pollution sources and their potential interactions with indoor sinks. In addition to a comprehensive overview of source/sink characterization methods, there are 29 peer-reviewed papers. Researchers and practitioners in the public and private sector from the US, Canada and numerous European countries provide data in the following key areas:

    • The design, construction, characterization and operation of a wide variety of test chambers and facilities.

    • Experimental testing methods and protocols for determining emission factors, including VOCs, and evaluating sink adsorption/desorption rates.

    • Models for predicting source and sink behavior to best evaluate indoor occupant exposure to emissions.

    • How bioresponse testing, product labeling, risk assessment, simplified screening methods and product classifications based on exposure estimates can be instrumental in selecting indoor materials.

    This is an invaluable resource for indoor product manufacturers of furniture, carpets, caulks and adhesives, cleaning/maintenance supplies, paints and coatings; for Indoor Air Quality consultants and researchers; occupational health professionals; industrial hygienists; public health and environmental officials; as well as commercial building owners and operators, and HVAC consultants and engineers.
