ISIAQ.nl (International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate) is organising a Scientific Update on Thursday June 30th, 2016. This afternoon is devoted to research into wood smoke from stoves and fireplaces. During the Scientific Update, Dutch studies in the field of wood smoke and the effects of wood smoke on the indoor environment and health will be highlighted. Additionally, attention will be paid towards examining solutions to reduce the nuisance from wood smoke. This afternoon is made possible by the Center for Sustainability, Environment and Health of the RIVM. The symposium will be in Dutch.
During the symposium, Vincent Vons (head R&D of VFA Solutions) will give a presentation on how electrostatic filtration can be used to counter the wood smoke nuisance and hereby improve the indoor air quality. Do you want to ask questions on the efficiency of the VFA Solutions air purifiers in combination with wood smoke? Please contact us during the break and we will personally answer you. Next to Vincent Vons, the RIVM, TNO and the GGD Groningen will give other important presentations.
Do you want to know all about the composition of wood smoke, the health risks and how wood smoke can be removed from the air? Apply per mail for the symposium before June 17th (subject: symposium houtrook) via firstname.lastname@example.org and mention your name and company name. Access to this symposium is free; however, if you do not show without deregistering, ISIAQ.nl will bill you €50,-.
