AbstractThe NRC research team has identified more than 50 IAQSTs for residential and commercial building applications. Using an evaluation matrix that is based on merit and feasibility criteria, these IAQSTs were evaluated and then ranked based on their scores. Comparing the cumulative merit and feasibility scores, the order of importance follows the trend: HRV/ERV > portable air cleaners > general duct cleaning with and without biodecontamination > indoor passive panels. It is recommended that these top 3 or 4 technologies be selected for protocol development and test evaluation for this research activity in the NRC-IRC Indoor Air Research and Development Initiative.
