The paper also focuses primarily on the opportunity to express and quantify changes in the properties of the internal environment of an object by using the value of the carbon footprint of the environment. It contains, among others, greenhouse gases and ammonia . Their concentration can be measured by a current experience can reduce the concentration of this example, the interior walls painted the color of the object with photocatalytic TiO2. Comparing the values of carbon footprints of two identical objects or two identical parts of one object when one object or one of its parts is provided , for example, paint the walls with photocatalytic TiO2 can obtain direct information on the effect of coating the walls with TiO2. Similarly, changes in the carbon footprint of the internal environment of the building and to quantify the change in technology in the building or its structural modifications , including for example the ventilation system object. This allows primarily for the same or a similar type of object a degree of prediction of the outcome of the planned changes during their construction or renovation. To calculate the amount of CO2 used standard calculator carbon footprint with equivalents for other gases than CO2. A disadvantage so determined carbon footprint is the impact of any non-identical external conditions of the compared objects. On the contrary, the advantage is that the living conditions in the building assessed comprehensively, as a result of the interaction of several variables, as it actually is.
