In this webinar, we will address the opportunities to use novel materials (from advanced functional nano-materials to bio-based building materials) as building components to actively/passively manage the IAQ, for example, through active paint, wallboards, and textiles coated with advanced sorbents or catalysts and quantify their potential, based on the assessment framework developed in the IEA EBC Annex 86 “Energy Efficient Indoor Air Quality Management in Residential Buildings”.
