Pollution and the recent fires in Stockholm - what can you do with the right filters?

News   •   Nov 10, 2017 13:15 GMT

Due to the tragic fires that recently happened in Stockholm, we received a lot of questions about how to prevent smoke and odors from influencing the indoor environment through ventilation. It’s not an easy task and many questions arise. What is burning? Is it harmful to our health? Where is the smoke coming from? How close is it?

92 percent of the world' s population lives in places with poor air quality

Press Releases   •   Oct 20, 2016 09:28 GMT

In a news release published on Sept. 27, 2016, the World Health Organization (WHO) reports that 92% of the global population is breathing air that fails to meet the health agency’s standards for acceptable quality.

To present its latest findings, WHO developed a new model with interactive maps showing where the international danger spots are for air pollution. The model is based on data sourced from satellite measurements, air transport models and ground-station monitors for more than 3,000 rural and urban locations. It represents the most detailed information to date on outdoor air pollution’s health effects.

In the release, WHO also summarizes air pollution’s toll on human health in a number of key statistics:

  • 3 million deaths a year are linked to exposure to outdoor air pollution, although WHO adds that indoor air pollution can be just as deadly. In 2012, for example, an estimated 6.5 million deaths (one in nine of total global deaths) were due to a combination of indoor and outdoor air pollution, WHO states.
  • 94% of air-pollution-related deaths are related to cardiovascular disease, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and lung cancer.
  • Nearly 90% of air-pollution deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries, predominantly in Southeast Asia and the Western Pacific region.
  • Mapping exposure to PM2.5 and PM10
    The interactive maps provide information on population-weighted exposure to PM2.5 (particulate matter less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter) for all countries, as well as data from monitoring PM2.5 and PM10 in 3,000 cities and towns.

    WHO says the new model is a big step towards even more confident estimates of the huge global burden of deaths from exposure to outdoor and indoor air pollution.

    “Air pollution continues to take a toll on the most vulnerable – women, children and older adults,” says Dr. Flavia Bustreo, WHO’s Assistant Director General. “For people to be healthy, they must breathe clean air from their first breath to their last.”

    Swedish athletes step inside for a breath of clean air in Rio

    Press Releases   •   Aug 18, 2016 13:43 GMT

    The environmental conditions at Olympic venues held in major world cities have been receiving more and more attention over the years, especially worries about the negative impact of air pollution on sports performance and the health of competing athletes in venues like Athens, Beijing and London.

    These air quality concerns have surfaced again at this year’s Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. According to a report just released by Reuters (see link below), the Brazilian’s city’s air pollution is the worst of any Olympic city since the 1980s, with the exception of Beijing in 2008.

    Reuters states that “Rio de Janeiro's air is dirtier and deadlier than portrayed by authorities and the Olympics’ promised legacy of cleaner winds has not remotely been met”. The report is based on an analysis of government data and Reuters’ own testing of air quality at Olympic sites in Rio.

    The report states that Rio’s air has consistently been two to three times above the WHO’s annual limit for PM10 since 2008. Rio’s PM2.5* levels have also exceeded the WHO's annual limits 83 percent of the time since 2011. Exhaust fumes from several million vehicles are the main source of Rio’s air quality problems.

    Camfil on location in RioTo provide better conditions for recovery from Rio’s air pollution, the ventilation air in areas used by the Swedish Olympic teams is currently being filtered and cleaned in high-efficiency air purifiers from Camfil to provide high indoor air quality (IAQ).

    The installation of the air purifiers is part of a major ongoing collaboration project (see link below) to evaluate how an athlete’s recovery process benefits from clean air.

    Two models
    Camfil’s City S air purifiers are being used in the living accommodations of all Swedish Olympic teams, while a larger model, the City M, is being used in conference rooms and other common facilities shared by the Swedish Olympians.

    Prior to the Games, the City S was also used to purify the air in the homes of several Swedish Olympians training and preparing for Rio. Camfil has also prepared “A Brief Guide to Indoor Air for Elite Athletes” to help the sports community gain a better understanding of how poor quality air affects the human body.

    * WHO, the EU and many national environmental protection agencies are monitoring PM2.5 and PM10 today, but to provide a truly healthy and productive indoor air environment in areas with bad air pollution, ventilation systems need filters that also remove a significant amount of PM1– the smallest and most harmful fraction.
