1. Carbon Monoxide Exposure Analyses in Support of Emission Rate Limits for Portable Generators
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1846
Published: 10/20/2014
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich, Brian J Polidoro
Abstract: The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and others are concerned about the hazard of acute residential carbon monoxide (CO) exposures from portable gasoline-powered generators, which can result in death or serious adverse health effects in ...

2. Effect of Ozonation on Fungal Resistance of Bamboo and Oak
Published: 8/15/2014
Authors: Chi Hoang, Tinh Nguyen, Deborah L Stanley, Andrew Keith Persily, Richard Cosi
Abstract: Wood is gaining increased interest as a renewable building material. However, color changes, chemical and microbiological degradation can occur when lignocellulosic materials are exposed to environmental stressors such as ozone and elevated humidity. ...

3. Infiltration in energy modeling: a simple equation made better
Published: 8/8/2014
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: As building envelope performance and HVAC equipment efficiencies continue to be improved to reduce building energy use, a greater percentage of the total energy loss of a building can occur through envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts of uni ...

4. Indoor Air Quality: The Forgotten, Yet Critical, Element in Sustainable Buildings
Published: 8/6/2014
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In this paper, we consider how high performing, sustainable building programs and designs are currently addressing indoor air quality (IAQ) and how they might improve their treatment of IAQ. As part of this effort, we reviewed 100 case studies of hig ...

5. Long Term Air Quality Monitoring in a Net-Zero Energy Residential Test Facility Designed with Specifications for Low Emitting Interior Products
Published: 8/6/2014
Authors: Dustin G Poppendieck, Lisa C Ng, Matthew P Schlegel, Andrew Keith Persily, Alfred Hodgson
Abstract: This study evaluated the effectiveness of a low-VOC (volatile organic compounds) specification designed to minimize occupant exposures to indoor air pollutants in a net-zero energy research house meeting the ASHRAE Standard 62.2 ventilation requireme ...

6. Long Term Emissions from Spray Polyurethane Foam Insulation
Published: 8/6/2014
Authors: Dustin G Poppendieck, Steven J Nabinger, Matthew P Schlegel, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: The desire to build more energy efficient homes in the United States has lead to the expansion of the residential spray polyurethane foam (SPF) insulation industry. Annually, over 100,000 homes in the United States are constructed or retrofit using S ...

7. Measured Carbon Monoxide Emission Rates from Stock and Reduced- Emission Prototype Portable Generators
Published: 8/6/2014
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Leon Wang, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: To better understand and to reduce the occurrence of carbon monoxide fatalities, this paper presents measured CO emission rates from both stock (i.e., without emission reduction technology) and reduced-emission prototype portable generators operating ...

8. Simulation Study of Carbon Monoxide Exposure from Portable Generators in U.S. Residences
Published: 8/6/2014
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich, Yanling Wang, Brian J Polidoro
Abstract: A simulation study was conducted to evaluate indoor CO exposures as a function of portable generator location and CO emission rate in order to support the development of potential CO emission limits for generators. These simulations employed the mult ...

9. Indoor Air Quality in High Performance Buildings: What is and isn't in ASHRAE/IES/USGBC Standard 189.1
Published: 7/29/2014
Author: Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: While most discussions of high performance buildings (HPB) include site impacts, water use, energy, materials and indoor environmental quality, energy often receives more attention than these other attributes. Given that buildings exist primarily for ...

10. Characterization of Emissions from Spray Polyurethane Foam: Letter Report to U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Interagency Agreement CPSC-I-13-0016
Series: OTHER
Published: 5/15/2014
Authors: Dustin G Poppendieck, Matthew P Schlegel, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Nabinger
Abstract: This letter report provides a project update reflecting the activities to date under the FY2013 interagency agreement between CPSC and NIST. The objective of that agreement is to develop testing and measurement protocols for determining the quantitie ...
