The impact of the concentration of pollutants in the air on emissions from building materials is the subject of that study.Different building materials were studied in ventilated small-scale test chambers. The experiment allowed the changing of the dilution factor or the changing of the area factor.The results showed that more ventilation in a given space may increase the emissions from the inner surfaces.
