The IAQM considers the reduction of emissions at source or the reduction in exposure to pollution to always be preferable to the use of any technique that purports to remove pollutants from the air by active or passive means. Before an investment is made in any solution of this kind, a thorough appraisal of the efficacy of that solution should be carried out based on scientific evidence and professional judgement.
The IAQM issues position statements on matters that could affect the way in which Members carry out their professional tasks and on air quality topics and issues where the IAQM can provide a unique perspective from which to give a professional opinion.
Interim papers published for comment from members before a final version is produced. If you have any comments, please send these to firstname.lastname@example.org before 30th August 2019.
