AtmosAir in the News: Departures Magazine

AtmosAir was recently featured in Departures Magazine in the article titled “The New Think: The Amazing Ideas that Shape our World.”

Edited by Julian Sancton, the article profiled the copious benefits defined by how much one can pay for airfare, including the air we breathe while traveling.

As the article indicates, fresh, clean air is becoming more of a quintessential luxury good and a booming sector.  ‘The World Health Organization now calls air pollution “the world’s largest single environmental health risk,” contributing to 3 million deaths each year (more than twice the global death rate from auto accidents).’

Commercial buildings, airports, hotel rooms and even restaurants have started to charge premiums for cleaner environments with the best air quality.  Airports like LAX have installed enhanced purification throughout. The global architecture firm, Gensler, also recently issued a report called “Design for Polluted and Toxic Environments,” concluding that it was imperative, no matter how challenging, to reduce both indoor air pollution and energy consumption in buildings.

The importance of healthy indoor air quality is definitely trending and Departures noted how AtmosAir has been thinking on a grander scale about the social benefits of clean air.

The article notes, ‘AtmosAir is working on improving air quality in sports arenas to bolster athletic performance, office buildings to increase productivity and hospitals to cut down the risk of infection.’
