Environmental Disease Control Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Aerobiological Engineering Handbook
by Wladyslaw Jan Kowalski

Aerobiological Engineering Handbook encompasses everything needed to design and build systems that control airborne pathogens and reduce respiratory hazards in indoor environments.

Features:

  • Examines sick building syndrome and building-related illness resulting from known, suspected, and emerging pathogens and allergens
  • Includes complete databases for airborne and animal pathogens and bio-weapons to help you quickly identify infection risks
  • Fully describes the technologies for controlling airborne hazards: ventilation systems; filtration; ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVG); carton adsorption; photocatalytic oxidation (PCO); airborne ozone disinfection; ionization; pulsed light and pulsed electric fields; ultrasonification; and more
  • Explains detection and monitoring methods for air sampling
  • Puts at your fingertips specific design data and tools, including time-saving software for designing ventilation, filters, and other equipment
  • Offers detailed information on avoiding and remediating mold and microbial growth problems and managing odors and gases
  • Recommends methods and technologies for dealing with potential bio-terrorist weapons in HVAC systems, including "immune building" technologies
