14.09.2022 Ι The main theme of this year’s Filtrex conference and exhibition will be the role of filtration in health and mobility. The conference is being held in Berlin on 8-9 November. It is organised by Edana, the leading international association serving the nonwovens and related industries.
Improvements on cabin air filters
The first session of the two-day event will open with a keynote address from Bogi Eliasen, director of health at the Copenhagen Institute for Future Studies. Eliasen will address the concept of “The Home as the Health Catalysator” and highlight the importance of indoor air filtration, as we spend most of our time living and working indoors. In the following the focus lies on air filtration with technical presentations on improving the stability of electrostatic charge and on advanced testing of viral reduction efficacy.
The opening session on day two will focus on mobility and readiness for electric vehicles. Cities and mobility senior consultant at Euromonitor International, Fransua-Vyautas Razvadauskas, will address the infrastructure and sustainability challenges of a major shift to EVs and present the “EV Readiness Index”. Other presentations will cover HL3 certified filter bags for trains, and on improvements on cabin air filters for cars. The programme concludes with a session on tests and standards. This is of utmost importance to properly evaluate the performance of filter media. A new GBT standard on air-purifiers will be introduced, as well as state of the art porosity measurements and their relevance. We proceed with the first classification system for molecular filters for general ventilation and conclude with an overview of efficiency testing and the influence of the measuring technology used.
Opportunities and Awards
The first day will showcase the third edition of the Filtrex Innovation Awards, an accolade which honours the efforts of manufacturers of nonwoven based filtration products/elements and celebrates their continuous efforts for excellence and innovation. The nominees will each receive a 10-minute slot to present their innovation. The winner will be selected by the audience. The conference is an opportunity for professionals in the filtration and nonwovens sector to meet, network and gain the latest insights on developments in the sector.To the website of Filtrex
