AtmosAir International: Leading Presence at Air Quality Summit in Thailand!

AtmosAir was invited by local dealer and partner, Better-Pro Intergroup, as well as local air quality testing company, Shawpat, to conduct a 2-hour presentation on indoor air quality to numerous attendees in Bangkok, Thailand. In addition to AtmosAir, Shawpat (Safety And Health At Work Promotion Association) and Professor and President of the International Occupational Health and Safety Program, Dr. Chalermchai Chaichittip, presented at the daylong event.

Attendees included representatives from hospitals, hotels, engineering firms, developers, designers and property management firms.  Executive Director, Sam Michael, presented on behalf of AtmosAir and focused on educating attendees on air quality and its importance to health, how to manage air quality via base building, design and operation perspectives including bi-polar ionization.

Concerns around air quality are just starting to develop in Bangkok and the rest of Thailand as citizens there gain an awareness of the importance of clean air and the daily air quality conditions.  AtmosAir introduced how China has approached air quality and how the indoor air quality industry has developed, hoping to continue these improvements throughout all of Asia.

Michael noted, “We believe that it is important to share the latest research around air quality, health and productivity.  Everyday each individual breaths over 5,000 liters of air.  Ensuring that this air is as clean and healthy as possible, starts from convincing the people who manage buildings and air systems why clean air is important and how to provide the cleanest air to their occupants.”

Thailand’s hot and humid air conditions mean that there is a need in the market to save energy and reduce indoor air contaminants which include pm 2.5, mold, and bacteria.

AtmosAir already has several installations in Bangkok which include locations where airborne bacteria was reduced by 70-95% with the application of AtmosAir technology.

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 Helps Green Schools Keep Promises to Parents

As many organizations unite to combat air pollution, environmental groups such as Moms Clean Air Force, have been leading the initiative to better the indoor air quality within schools across the country.

Moms Clean Air Force is a community of over 1,000,000 moms—and dads!—working together to combat air pollution, including the urgent crisis of our changing climate.

The air quality in schools is largely unregulated and can also pose significant challenges to health and learning. A member from the Moms Clean Air Force, Molly Rauch, says schools’ indoor air quality, “has been linked to asthma and respiratory ailments, and has measurable impacts on the health and productivity of students and teachers.”

Rauch adds that according to the Healthy School Network: “Out of the nearly 100,000 public school buildings in the country, more than two-thirds have at least one dire infrastructure problem, like leaking roofs or inadequate ventilation in need of repair or replacement, as well as poor chemical management. The American Society of Civil Engineers says schools are in worse shape than prisons.”

AtmosAir™ is the most proven and effective solution to reduce inhalable particualate matter (PM), VOCs, and pathogens to create healthy indoor environments where people thrive.  By installing our efficient system throughout schools, results have indicated that improvements in school environmental quality can enhance academic performance, as well as teacher and staff productivity and retention.  AtmosAir is installing systems in over ten schools this summer. 

According to the EPA, ‘conditions found in older, poorly maintained school buildings — leaky roofs; problems with heating, ventilation and insufficient cleaning or excessive use of cleaning chemical in connection with air conditioning systems, as well as, mold, dust and toxic fumes from products and pesticides. These conditions increase absenteeism and reduce academic performance.’

In addition to our installation, efforts have been increasing to clean up schools.  According to USAToday, the Green School movement is sweeping the country, as ‘green schools exist in every state and account for 45% of new school construction, up from 15% in 2008.”  Nearly half of the nation’s schools require some sort of green certification like LEED, as a condition to receiving state construction funds.  Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED has become an important moniker in environmentally-conscious construction.

As student performance has been proven to directly correlate with their learning environments, AtmosAir Solutions will be continuing our eco-work to help improve the sustainability of public and private learning schools both on a domestic and international scale.
