Indoor air quality

Health is where the home is...

Today indoor pollution – defined by the Italian Ministry for the Environment as the presence of physical, chemical and biological contaminants in the air in confined spaces which are not naturally occurring in outside air – has become an even more widespread problem.

The air in confined spaces depends on the quality of the air outside, as well as any additional pollutants that are only present inside buildings: despite what one may think, the most up-to-date figures on indoor pollution confirm the fact that the quality of air in confined spaces is between 2 and 3 times worse than that outside, which is also caused by poor breathability in the walls.

One of the main advantages of Kerakoll GreenBuilding as a style of building is the immediate sense of comfort and wellbeing that comes from walls that can breath naturally, helping to maintain a natural equilibrium in the building. This becomes even more important when you consider that people in the world’s most economically developed countries spend 90% of their time in closed spaces, 30-40% of which is in the workplace.
