AbstractNRC-IRC has initiated a multi-year project to develop technological solutions protocols to improve indoor air quality. Under this activity, portable air cleaners (PACs), commercial air duct cleaning (DC) and heat/energy recovery ventilators (H/ERV) were chosen out of 50 technologies from around the world, using a ranking process developed at NRC. This test report deals with the evaluation of the portable air cleaner protocol test method. It is prepared by NRC researchers under the guidance of the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) whose members are participants representing Federal and Provincial Agencies, Industry Associations, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), Municipal governments, and Standards Associations from Canada. Compliance to this protocol test method is voluntary until and unless a jurisdiction makes compliance mandatory through legislation.
