To get the best set of answers, I am forwardingbelow a request for information I recently received from a colleague.
"Do you know if there are generally acceptedair quality standards for chemistry buildings, and if there are where wouldI find them?
Also, do you know where I could find information about generally acceptedpractices with regards to testing air quality, especially in academic buildingssuch as ours?
I'm asking these questions in part due to a lack of knowledge, and in partbased on some concerns about air quality in our chemistry building followingsome work on our air handling related to energy conservation."
Thanks for your help and advice.
