This week we welcome Dr. David Miller for our first “Founding Fathers of IEQ” shows. Dr. Miller is a Distinguished Research Professor at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario Canada. He and some others we will talk about have been instrumental in getting Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) recognized as a public health issue. We will learn about his career and how he and others were able to help ensure that IEQ is recognized as a public health issue that has science based guidance from cognizant authorities. When it comes to affecting change Dr. Miller says: “It’s hard to run away from evidence”.

This week we look forward to hearing highlights from THE Florida Mold Conference aka AEML Winter Break. The event was a big success with full house attendance and excellent feedback. We will hear the highlights from each module’s moderator about each of the domains the event focused on. We will look at current thoughts on Moisture with John Lapotraire, Materials with John Downey, Mold with Jon Isaacson and Methodologies with Ken Larsen. We will also hear from Pete Consigli and of course the Z-man Cliff Zlotnik who attended the event for IAQ Radio+. For the roundup we have invited a few other attendees for their unique perspective on what was learned at THE Florida Mold Conference. This show is designed to focus on key highlights and information for those that could not attend.

This week the Z-man is in Florida at the AEML Winter Break aka The Florida Mold Conference. We look forward to talking to him and going through his “Odor Hunters” presentation. The Z-man has been hunting odors for going on five decades. He is a pioneer in developing processes for finding the source of odors and for correcting the issue once it’s discovered. This presentation will go over what odors are, how they are perceived, how material porosity affects odor, fire related odors, odor events, microbial odors, the odor patch test and odor hunter devices.

This week we’re going to explore some Practice to Research with real world examples from Mr. Ed Light. Ed has been doing research on his own projects and has some interesting results to pass along to our audience. We’ll be discussing mold growth and climate change, MERV 8 vs. MERV 13 for particulate control and a critique of research support for COVID response measures in buildings.

This week we are going to explore how computational fluid dynamics (CFD) can help visualize indoor environmental quality (IEQ) with a widely respected proponent Dr. Kishor Kahnkari. How can we use this tool when designing, building and maintaining a buildings indoor environmental quality? Dr. Kishor Khankari is the president and founder of AnSight LLC. He is a specialist in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Kishor has several years of experience in providing consulting services that have resulted in optimized solutions to a wide variety of engineering problems. A noted expert in his field, he has a Ph.D. in CFD from the University of Minnesota and has regularly published in several technical journals.

This week on IAQ Radio+ we welcome Eugenia Mirica PhD, Franco Seif PE and Joe Spurgeon PhD for a discussion on Sampling Surface Char in Residential Properties Impacted by Wildfire Smoke. There is a gathering interest in research, standards and guidelines related to wildfire smoke assessment, exposure and cleaning. This is a topic that would have been even more in the news if it was not for the COVID pandemic. Check out this week’s articles and links for several new studies being announced etc. and join us today at noon to learn more on the best methods for evaluating the impact of wildfire smoke in the built environment.
