SEMINAR: IAQ in Chinese residences and it's control : VOC's, SVOC's, Filtration and air cleaner performance

Seminar Abstract 

Funded by the national key project of the Ministry of Science and Technology, China, on “Green Buildings and Building Industrialization”, nation-wide field study have been conducted to investigate the air quality status and air cleaning effectiveness in residential buildings, China. The multiple entry measurement of volatile organic compounds, semi-volatile organic compounds will be reported. The effectiveness of portable air cleaner in reducing indoor particle matter, which is strongly influenced by the operation behaviour, will be presented. The ventilation system filter performance change with usage time was monitored, which aimed to provide a prediction method for filter maintenance.

Seminar Speaker(s) 

Jingjing Pei
PhD. Associate Professor, School of Environmental Science and Engineering, Tianjin University

Dr. Jingjing Pei has over 10 years research experience in the field of indoor air quality since her PhD study. Her areas of expertise include: indoor formaldehyde and VOCs pollutant cleaning technology; performance evaluation of gas phase air cleaning materials and products; indoor pollutant source characteristics, including SVOC and secondary emission from filters; etc. Dr. Pei has been actively involved in many key research projects. She has won two prestige research projects funded by China National Science Foundation, and are also involved as the subtask leader of two influential national key projects sponsored by the Ministry of Science and Technology of China, working on residential VOCs pollution characteristics, secondary pollutant emission from ventilation filters, and performance and modeling of building air cleaning products. Dr. Pei is also leading the standard development on “Test method for assessing the performance of gas-phase air cleaning media and devices for general ventilation” with the support of China Refrigeration and Air-conditioning Industry Association. Dr. Pei has published about 60 journal and conference papers, among which two received the “Best Paper Award” in the journal of “Building and Environment” in 2015 and “Building Simulation” in 2010, respectively.
