(2016)The 14th international conference of indoor air quality and climate: conference proceedings. Mark abstract This study was organised to quantify the effect of upgrading the filter efficiency in balance ventilation systems on indoor exposure to traffic-related air pollution, in 4 primary school classrooms. The standard air filters (EU F7) were compared with more efficient EU F9, and with F7+active carbon filters. Particulate matter (PM), ultrafine particles (UFP), black carbon (BC), PM2.5, organic/elemental carbon in PM2.5 (EC/OC), and NO2 were quantified, air tightness and air supply rates were assessed and pupils’ indoor comfort was surveyed. Analysis of indoor air as function of outdoor air and filter type indicated a significant but small reduction of indoor levels when upgrading the filter, except for PM10, TSP and UFP. The indoor comfort survey indicated a small but significant and positive effect as well.
