Review of indoor radon, air-tightness, air ventilation: results in Kazakhstan

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Kazakhstan is one of the fastest dynamically developing countries in Central Asia. The growth in construction both in cities and rural areas leads to a corresponding concern about exposure to radon and its decay products. High levels of radon are observed in Northern and Eastern Kazakhstan. Studies suggest that houses with better air ventilation systems should counteract radon concentration better; however there is minor attention to how fast radon concentrates in a closed dwelling. Additionally, there is not much research and surveys being done in Kazakhstan to fully evaluate how dwellings’ air-tightness and their ventilation systems affect the levels of inside radon concentrations. This paper aims to review the ventilation strategies and indoor radon as well as define a mathematical model of relationship between air-tightness and radon concentration in a typical dwelling in Kazakhstan.
