Cost Analysis of Indoor Air Control Techniques: used by indoor air quality (IAQ) diagnosticians, architects/engineers, building owners/operators, and the scientific community, for preliminary comparison of the cost-effectiveness of alternative IAQ control measures for any given commercial or institutional building. Such a preliminary analysis could aid the user in initial decision-making prior to retaining experts (such as HVAC engineers and building modelers) who could conduct a rigorous evaluation.

Methodology for Cost-Effective Selection of IAQ Control Options: can be used by indoor air quality (IAQ) diagnosticians, architects/engineers, building owners/operators, and the scientific community, for preliminary comparison of the cost-effectiveness of alternative IAQ control measures for any given commercial or institutional building. Such a preliminary analysis could aid the user in initial decision-making prior to retaining experts (such as HVAC engineers and building modelers) who could conduct a rigorous evaluation).

Expertise in Life Cycle Analysis: provides a standard approach for evaluating the lifecycle environmental trade-offs and full costs of solid waste management. The tool includes waste management activities of collection transportation, material recovery facilities, transfer stations, composting, remanufacturing (of recovered materials), land filling, and combustion. The MSW-DST allows communities to find sustainable solutions to minimize environmental burdens and maximize resource conservation and recovery. A web-accessible version is under development.
