The Influence of Clothing and Other Textiles on Your Exposure to Indoor Air Pollutants
November 14, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Textiles can have a very large capacity to accumulate indoor pollutants. As such, textiles can act as a major source, but they also can act as a sink that can lower exposure depending on their history. Given clothing’s close proximity to the skin, it can be a particularly influential exposure mediator. Laboratory and human studies now show how important textiles can be in controlling exposure and also provide data allowing for the testing of new exposure models. Extrapolation from these models shows just how much clothing influences population exposure to indoor pollutants, but also suggests ways to use textiles to control exposure.
Presenter: Glenn Morrison, Ph.D., is a professor of Environmental Science and Engineering at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and has been studying indoor and outdoor air pollution and human exposure for 30 years. He received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, and his research has primarily been related to indoor physics and chemistry.
