A new campaign was launched in London to urge UK businesses to fit adequate ventilation systems that comply with European guidelines.

The initiative, launched in October by the Campaign for Clean Air in London and Camfil UK, argues that better indoor air quality (IAQ) can help businesses reduce energy costs and carbon emissions, while also improving the health and productivity of employees.
Simon Birkett, founder of the Campaign for Clean Air in London, said:
The best air filtration systems can help businesses protect employees from 90 per cent of air pollutants for up to 90 per cent of the time. Ask yourself the question: does our ventilation system include regularly maintained air filters that comply with European guideline EN 13779 and if not, why not?
Camfil Farr were at the Energy Solutions Expo at London Olympia on 11th /12th October. The Camfil Farr Indoor Air Quality Roadshow was outside the Entrance to Olympia for the duration of the show.

The Camfil Farr team were on hand to demonstrate to Property & Estates Managers, FM’s and Energy Assessors about the substantial energy saving opportunities (25-50%) that can be made by replacing existing filter assets with low energy air filters. Providing clean air demands energy. Clean Air also saves lives and money. We need air filters, but we also need to ensure they are sustainable and energy efficient.
We demonstrated how our award winning low energy air filters can help make significant energy savings in buildings.
Following a brief Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) movie, the Camfil Farr team informally demonstrated via live interactive lab stations;
- Why high-quality air filters are required for good protection against outdoor pollutants
- How we can save money by reducing energy consumption
- Removal of damaging ozone gasses
- Visual performance demonstrations
