Sustainable Filtration Solutions for Healthy Living and the Environment
Although there is and has been a lot of information published about the harmful effects of poor IAQ/IEQ on our health, the engineering and standards/guidelines community have historically focused on designing buildings for thermal comfort and energy efficiency, with much too little emphasis on the impact of poor IAQ/IEQ on human health. How we measure, monitor, and quite frankly monetize (for those of us in the industry) “IEQ solutions” beyond our conventional supply chain routes of products and services, is a huge challenge and opportunity for our industry especially around driving standards (and ultimately regulations), product efficacy, and increased awareness that will ultimately benefit the consumer.
This presentation will discuss recent developments in clean air strategies and technologies for healthy buildings. Emerging opportunities and trends of the filtration and air cleaning industry will be also discussed.
