Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, indoor air pollution in built environments has become a serious problem, affecting people's health and lives. With this in mind, we have launched a Special Issue titled "Sustainable Built Environments: Energy Efficiency and Indoor Air Quality" to explore ways of saving building energy consumption while ensuring a comfortable indoor environment in the background of sustainable development and reducing indoor air pollution.

This Special Issue focuses on the technical application of energy-saving building systems, the monitoring and management of indoor air quality, and the interaction between the two. In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcomed. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Indoor environment quality, climate ventilation, and airtightness;
  • Ventilation in relation to IAQ and health aspects;
  • Smart technologies for building performance;
  • HVAC systems;
  • Building system integration and operation;
  • Green building and IAQ;
  • Indoor radon management and mitigation;
  • Managing indoor air quality and energy efficiency.

I look forward to receiving your contributions.

Prof. Dr. António José Candeias Curado
Guest Editor
