Unveiling the air quality in buildings
The research of the Human-Oriented Built Environment Lab (HOBEL) is based on maintaining a sustainable and healthy built environment, focusing on indoor air quality and distribution, ventilation systems, human exposure to atmospheric pollution, the dynamics of airborne pollutants inside buildings, thermal comfort, and energy efficiency.
HOBEL strives to advance the knowledge of the intersections between people and buildings by ensuring high indoor environmental quality for building occupants with minimum energy consumption. HOBEL’s mission is to improve the knowledge in the domains of dynamics and fate of air pollutants in buildings, human inhalation exposures, smart ventilation systems and controls, and more broadly, human comfort and energy efficiency in the built environment.
Buildings of the future must not be only energy efficient, but they should also offer a “Michelin Star” air qualityDusan Licina, Head of HOBEL Lab
