Thinking environmental issues around us from the viewpoint of indoor air quality
The air around us is the most important factor in discussing environmental issues as such pollutants as particulate matter (PM) 2.5 and formaldehyde are contained in the air. In particular, indoor air quality will have significant impacts on the health of humans and comfortableness of architectures and urban cities because we humans spend a considerable amount of time inside buildings. We are researching indoor air quality through the observation of air inside buildings across the nation and from multiple other perspectives.

Keeping the air clean will not only boost our health but also presents a major challenge in the manufacturing sector. For example, the issue is critical at factories making food and pharmaceutical products, where the quality of products comes under strict scrutiny.
- Research on nanoparticles inside buildings
- Research on the indoor air quality at social welfare facilities and underground shopping arcades, whose environments are relatively peculiar
- Research on methods to design air-conditioning facilities by considering the efficiency of ventilation
