Schools fail indoor air quality tests

Earlier this month, Camfil’s Air Quality and Building Energy Expert, Peter Dyment presented at the Education Estates Conference at Manchester Central. Education Estates is a two-day exhibition and conference which brings together the education sector from primary schools to Universities as well as experts in design, construction, project management, engineering and energy efficiency to share best practice and learn from each other.

Peter’s presentation “Indoor Air Quality for School Buildings” discussed the importance of clean air in schools and demonstrated that clean indoor air quality improves learning.

In London – breathing can kill you

air pollution

Diesel emissions take much of the blame for stubbornly high concentrations of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) in recent years. London suffers the biggest cluster of pollutant limit breaches in the UK and the UK is subject to infraction action by the European Commission that could result in fines in the hundreds of millions

The Mayor and Transport for London (TfL) launched a public consultation last week on proposals to introduce the world’s first Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) in the capital by September 2020, to significantly improve air quality and in turn the health of Londoners.

The London Assembly’s Environment Committee will tomorrow assess the contribution of diesel emissions to London’s air pollution problems and explore the potential of modern engine technologies, as well as air quality regulations, to reduce these emissions. Continue reading

ProSafe – air filters for sensitive processes

“Clean air is an essential ingredient”

Some production processes are so sensitive that the surrounding air and what it contains must be monitored and controlled. This is the case in industries like food and beverage and life science, where products need to be protected from undesirable particles. The choice of high-quality air filters then becomes a critical decision.

ProSafe filters

Our range of ProSafe air filters is designed to comply with strict industry demands for safety, traceability and control. Tested and developed according to precise specifications, ProSafe filters are manufactured with materials that will not contaminate delicate production processes.

The ProSafe series offers reliability for manufacturers that cannot afford to take chances. While life science industries require filters to be resistant against decontamination agents, food and beverage industries need components that are certified for food contact according to European standard EC1935:2004.
