Innovations in technologies and strategies that reduce exposure to radon in buildings


Radon mitigation technologies using sub-slab depressurization has been demonstrated for many years but may not be practical for some applications due to cost or building characteristics. Of particular interest are: alternatives to sub-slab depressurization radon mitigation strategies and technologies for low income housing or for high-rise buildings, lower cost alternative materials for soil gas collection plenums in new construction, and effective methods for mitigating radon in well water. Important parameters include: low cost of installation and operation, ease of maintenance and operation, and feasibility of retrofitting the proposed technology.
