Take a Breath

Breathing air is essential for life. It is the very first thing we do when we are born. This is an instinct and naturally, we expect the air to be clean but we do not instinctively question the quality of the air that we breathe.

However, in recent years the scientific community and global media are increasingly reporting on the links between human health and poor air quality. Many national bodies and world organizations are addressing this problem. As the health and economic impacts become more apparent they endeavor to set new standards and raise awareness.

It is our responsibility to support these global initiatives that will allow you to Take a Breath with total confidence. Our mission with the Take a Breath campaign is to create interest, provide information and raise awareness about indoor and outdoor air pollution.

So Take a Breath and dive with us under the surface of “Air Quality.”

What is PM1?

Humans eat approximately 2 lbs. of food each day, drink about 4 lbs. of fluids per day and breathe more than 33 lbs. of air per day. We care about the food we eat and the water that we drink, but rarely do we consider the air we breathe. Find out more with our Take A Breath infographics.

Air Pollution Public Awareness on the Rise

Air pollution is not a new problem. The London smog of 1952 killed an estimated 12,000 people, and in response to it, a Clean Air Act was passed in the UK to combat air pollution. View our infographic to learn more about the risks.

PM1 - The new focus to protect human health

Ambient air quality has improved considerably in the last few decades by a range of measures. However, there is convincing evidence that current levels of air pollution still pose a considerable risk to human health.

Camfil Welcomes ISO 16890

This standard provides the first opportunity for global harmonisation as it proceeds to replace the two existing localised standards; ASHRAE 52.2 which is dominant in USA and EN779:2012 which is dominant in Europe.

PM1: the smallest particles in the air

We all know that air pollution is bad for human health. A much less known fact is that new research indicates that the smallest particles in the air are the most dangerous.
