COVID-19 & Indoor Air Quality: New Best Practices webinar series
November 10, 2020
Dr. Marwa Zaatari, P.E.
ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer; member, ASHRAE Epidemic Task Force Commercial Buildings Subcommittee; Chief Science Officer, BlueBox Air, LLC
New Methods for Modeling COVID Mitigation Approaches
Dr. Zaatari’s presentation included these discussion points, among others:
- New Core Principles from ASHRAE promote “effective ACH” approaches to reduce risk while minimizing associated energy penalties
- There are many ways to calculate the relative risk of different strategies but no tools until now to compare the relative cost and carbon impact of different strategies
- The new enVerid COVID Energy Estimator can be used to compare the cost and carbon impact of different ventilation, filtration, and air cleaning strategies with ACH-based risk scenarios
- It is possible to reduce airborne transmission risk without a significant energy or carbon penalty
