Chemical measurements were made in 17 buildings in Quebec to determine contaminant sources and airborne concentrations and to establish their interrelation.
The feasibility of using carbon dioxide as an air quality indicator for other airborne chemical contaminants also was evaluated.
The results indicate that chemicals present in office buildings can arise from both outside and inside; that the emission sources can be continuous, instantaneous, or local; and that some contaminants are related to occupancy and occupant activity.
