In the design of a commercial kitchen ventilation system, it is very important to maintain the capture efficiency of exhaust hoods and ensure smooth removal of heat, moisture, and odor.

Use of Demand Controlled ventilation (DCV) can potentially save more than 50% of energy use for ventilation purposes compared to constant air volume (CAV) ventilation.
Kari Thunshelle, Thea Marie Danielsen, Sverre Holøs, Mads Mysen
The European Commission’s Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME)  manages parts of the Horizon 2020 framework programme for research, innovation and market uptake (2014-2020), including for energy efficiency in the buildin

Exposures to elevated concentrations of airborne fine particulate matter with diameter ≤ 2.5 µm (PM2.5) have been linked to multiple negative health effects.
Catherine O’Leary, Benjamin Jones, Ian Hall
Cooking can be a major source of exposure to particulate matter. Range hoods can be used to reduce odours, moisture and contaminants resulting from cooking.
Wouter Borsboom, Willem de Gids, Iain Walker, Piet Jacobs
Cooking is one of the most substantial sources of indoor air pollution in most residences.  This is mitigated most often by exhaust devices located near cooking surfaces.
Iain S. Walker, Gabriel Rojas, Jordan D. Clark
Exposures to elevated concentrations of fine particulate matter with diameter ≤2.5µm (PM2.5) are linked to multiple acute and chronic health effects, including increased risk of cardiovascular and respiratory disease.
Catherine O’Leary, Benjamin Jones, Ian Hall
The research question of this report is “Is it possible to save energy by lowering the bedroom temperatures in winter”. In this paper first the literature on optimum sleeping temperatures is investigated.
Regina Bokel, Jiahui Cai, Priyadarshini Nanda, Tessa Rouwenhorst
There has been an increase in diseases caused by airborne infections such as influenza A/H1N1 or SARS in the recent years. Airborne infection isolation rooms are commonly used to limit the spread of airborne infections.
Harsem Trond Thorgeir, Venås Bård, Vikan Anders Welde, Lind Merethe Cecilie, Kalliomäki Petri, Koskela Hannu
Ventilation and healthy classes are a recurring problem. Continuously increasing the air flow rate improves the living environment, but is unacceptable in terms of higher costs and energy loss, which is why a different approach is needed.
Paul De Schepper
This paper presents results from a project on the assessment of the indoor air quality (IAQ) benefits that might accrue from the use of a balanced energy recovery ventilation system.
Boualem Ouazia, Daniel Aubin, Doyun Won, Wenping Yang, Stephanie So and Chantal Arsenault
This article proposes to study the impact of envelope and internal partition walls airleakage distributions, on the indoor air quality (IAQ) performance.
Gaëlle Guyot, Hugo Geoffroy, Michel Ondarts, Evelyne Gonze, Monika Woloszyn
The implementation of decentralised ventilation units is growing, especially in the residential retrofit.
Sven Auerswald, Thibault Pflug, Peter Engelmann, Nicolas Carbonare, Constanze Bongs, Hans-Martin Henning
Diffuse ceiling ventilation is a novel air distribution concept, where the space above a suspended ceiling is used as a plenum and fresh air is supplied into the occupied zone through perforations in the suspended ceiling panels.
Chen Zhang, Rune Andersen, Georgios Christodoulou, Marius Kubilius, Per Kvols Heiselberg
Air infiltration contributes to a heat loss typically representing up to one third of the heating demand of a building. The building airtightness, also quantified as air leakage, is the fundamental building property that impacts infiltration.
Alan Vega Pasos, Xiaofeng Zheng, Vasileios Sougkakis, Mark Gillott, Johann Meulemans, Olivier Samin, Florent Alzetto, Luke Smith, Stephen Jackson, Christopher J Wood
The air renovation of a building should be controlled in order to ensure a proper level of indoor air quality while minimize heat losses. It is a crucial point for the future energy efficiency goals.
Paolo Taddeo, Joana Ortiz, Jaume Salom, Eva Lucas Segarra, Vicente Gutiérrez González, German Ramos Ruiz, Carlos Fernández Bandera
In this paper a new methodology is presented to determine airtightness of buildings. The common method for airtightness testing is through fan pressurization with a blower door test. The new methodology also uses fan pressurization.
Timothy Lanooy, Wim Kornaat, Niek-Jan Bink, Wouter Borsboom
Nowadays the improvement of building airtightness is an essential condition to achieve high energy performance of buildings. Therefore, there is a need to precisely describe and quantify buildings infiltrations.
