And the 1% of the ventilation air being inhaled is not even clean. It is polluted by bioeffluents, emissions from building materials and sometimes even by ETS before it is inhaled. According to normal engineering practice, full mixing of clean air and pollutants seems to be an ideal. 2. What I foresee in the future are systems that supply rather small quantities of clean air close to the breathing zone of each individual. The idea is to serve to each occupant, clean air that is as unpolluted as possible by the pollution sources in the space.
