DUBAI: Renowned British technology company Dyson yesterday launched an indoor air quality initiative which will see schools across Dubai participate in a clean air programme aimed at raising the awareness of indoor air quality through fun and visual activities, students will get hands on and interactive access to simple changes they can be making in the classroom and at home.

Dyson is launching the educational programme in schools to help educate children on the importance of indoor quality. Although specific research on indoor air quality in the Middle East is less advanced than that on outdoor air quality; a recent study by a team from the Faculty of Engineering and IT at British University, Dubai found that the total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs) found in classrooms were more than two and half times the acceptable levels as set out by Dubai Municipality. According to Dubai Municipality standards, the concentration of total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs) should not exceed 300ug/m3, with values greater than 666 ug/m3 thought to increase the likelihood of eye, skin, nose and throat irritations.
