Seto Releases New Paper on Particle Emissions from Cooking Oil Fumes and Interventions

Recent work by CSDE Affiliate Edmund Seto, “Characterization of time- and size-dependent particle emissions and decay from cooking oil fumes in residence: Impacts of various intervention measures“, has appeared in Building Simulation. Through a real-world campaign in a naturally-ventilated apartment in the northwest US, this study investigates the temporal profiles of size-resolved particle number concentrations (PNCs) ranging from 0.3 to 10 µm from frying cooking activities. The cooking scenarios included various combinations of window ventilation, venting range hood (VRH) use, and portable air cleaner (PAC) utilization.
