Indoor Air Pollution from Household Use of Solid Fuels
Most research into and control of indoor air pollution worldwide has focused on sources of particular concern in developed countries, such as environmental tobacco smoke, volatile organic compounds from furnishings, and radon from soil. Although these pollutants have impacts on health, little is known about their global distribution. Thus this research focuses solely on indoor smoke from household use of solid fuels, the most widespread traditional paper of indoor air pollution on a global scale.
