AtmosAir to Showcase at Greenbuild Expo 2018!

AtmosAir Solutions will be participating in this week’s Greenbuild 2018 International Conference and Expo, the world’s largest conference and exhibition purely dedicated to green building. AtmosAir will be located at exhibit #151. Kicking off on November 14th, this year’s Greenbuild theme centers around Human By Nature (Human x Nature) and brings together industry leaders, experts and frontline professionals dedicated to sustainable building in their everyday work.

The green building movement embraces all of humanity by making sustainable buildings and environments accessible to everyone, and in doing so, benefits the natural environment all around us.  As major sustainability advocates, our team at AtmosAir continues to promote wellness and resiliency in construction and urban development.

Achieving energy efficiency is a top priority for building engineers, property managers and business owners across the country. The biggest consumer of energy in a commercial building is the HVAC system. 

Modern design and construction practices seal heated and cooled air indoors for the purpose of lowering energy costs.  The unfortunate result is poor indoor air quality.  Even with adequate ventilation, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), mold spores, and other unwanted contaminants build up inside, leading to significant indoor environmental issues.

AtmosAir Bipolar ionization treats the air in the space we breathe.  AtmosAir allows a building to recycle clean, conditioned air, nearly eliminating all mold spores, VOCs, and other unwanted ultrafine particles — all while simultaneously saving on your energy bills.

AtmosAir BPI reduces particulate matter and breaks down the chemical structure of VOCs.  That means it is not necessary to dilute and replace the space with additional amounts of outdoor air, nor is it necessary to strain the air through airflow-restrictive filters.  Because you can now accomplish air purification without a cost penalty by recycling a larger portion of the total air volume, you can retain the energy savings you worked so hard to achieve.

CEO of AtmosAir, Steve Levine noted, “We’re elated to be back at this year’s Greenbuild Expo.  With sustainability within buildings and our environment of such great importance, we’re happy to share that our system has helped to enhance human health and wellbeing as well as energy efficiency on a greater scale.  Some of our clients have noticed a greater than 40 percent reduction in peak load, and a 20 percent energy cost savings — and that doesn’t include savings on reduced HVAC maintenance as demands on the system decrease.”

Come visit us at exhibit 151, where Atmos representatives will be showcasing new products and software that have been developed over the past year.

Wednesday, November 14, 10am – 6pm

We hope to see you there!

AtmosAir Solutions Indoor Air Quality Systems Enhance United Airlines Lounge at Los Angeles International Airport!

AtmosAir Solutions has recently been installed at Chicago-based carrier’s United Club Lounge at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Furthermore, the lounge has achieved gold-level certification through the new Audubon International Green Hospitality program.

This particular program provides third-party verification that facilities have met environmental best practice standards and have demonstrated a strong commitment to water quality, water conservation, waste minimization, resource conservation and energy efficiency.

The Chicago Business Journal noted, ‘The carrier’s United Club location in Terminal 7 at LAX was recognized for its exemplary indoor air quality, innovative composting program, and overall dedication to environmental stewardship,’ and AtmosAir Solutions is ecstatic to be a part of the initiative in helping provide better breathing environments to those traveling both domestically and internationally.

AtmosAir™ is the most proven and effective air purification solution to reduce particulate matter (PM), VOCs, and pathogens to create healthy indoor environments where people thrive.  With over 7,500 installations and scores of independent tests, the data is so compelling that we’ve guaranteed our results greatly impact each client’s breathing space.

Gavin Molloy, United’s vice president of corporate real estate and environmental affairs stated: “As an industry-leading airline in green initiatives, we are constantly pursuing ways to reduce our footprint, whether through our use of low-carbon, sustainable aviation biofuel or our revaluation of onboard materials that resulted in keeping 30,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide out of the air each year.”

In 2017, ‘Air Transport World magazine titled United the “Eco-Airline of the Year,” and AtmosAir Solutions is proud to contribute to the cause.

Going forward, we will be continuing our eco-work to help improve the sustainability of both airport terminals and airline’s lounges around the world.

AtmosAir New Project Spotlights: Doha Metro & Presence Saints Mary’s Hospital:

ATMOSAIR NEW PROJECT SPOTLIGHTS: DOHA METRO & ST. MARY’S HOSPITAL:

Since our last newsletter, the AtmosAir team is very excited to announce two new project spotlights, the Doha Metro and St. Mary’s Hospital! While both are two very unique acquisitions, they demonstrate the importance of breathing clean air on a domestic and international scale.

DOHA METRO (Doha, Qatar):

The Doha Metro is a rapid transit system currently under construction in Doha, Qatar’s capital city. The anticipated completion date is by the end of 2020, consisting of four active lines with an approximate overall length of 300 km and 100 stations in 2 phases.

Qatar Rail, the client in charge of the development of the first 3 lines (Red, Gold and Green) and 37 stations (Phase I) that make up the current Doha Metro system, saw the need to add powerful and effective indoor air cleaning technology to the larger, more crowded stations, such as those where several lines intersect, and also go deeper underground to accommodate the different levels. The largest station, which sits at the intersection of all 3 lines is the “Iconic” Msheireb Station. AtmosAir was selected by Qatar Rail as the air purification system of choice. AtmosAir is being installed in all 36 Air Handlers that serve the 5 levels of Mshreieb Station. The Msheireb station, and the rest of the 3 lines, are expected to open to the public in 2020.

PRESENCE SAINTS MARY & ELIZABETH MEDICAL CENTER (Chicago, IL):

Presence Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center (PSMEMC) is an award-winning medical center on Chicago’s near northwest side. For more than a century, PSMEMC has delivered outstanding, compassionate medical care — providing patients and their families with patient and family-centered care from the moment they walk through their doors.

AtmosAir will be installed in various new air handling units serving ORs and ICUs. In hospitals, especially where the germ and disease count is significantly higher than typical buildings and residences, AtmosAir Bi-Polar Ionization technology helps to reduce bacteria, influenza, and viruses. Because bipolar ions impact the DNA of different bacteria and viruses, the hospital further helps to protect its inhabitants from illness and disease.

In 2018, hospitals are being fined for healthcare acquired infections and readmissions. AtmosAir is a proactive technology that will mitigate fines while working to keep occupants safe and healthy.
