ISO 16890 is an international test standard for air filters that from 1 July 2018 has replaced EN 779. ISO 16890 classifies air filters based on particulate matter (PM), which makes it possible to directly see connections to our health and air pollutants. The standard also makes it possible to plan indoor air quality (IAQ) in a completely different way than before.

Two striking facts perfectly illustrate why we need to place air quality at the top of the environmental and human health agenda. First, the quality of the air we breathe has a huge impact on our health and wellbeing; globally, air pollution is the leading environmental cause of shortened life, contributing to the equivalent of 5% of all deaths worldwide. Second, each of us inhales more than 25 million particles with every breath we take; the more contaminants we ingest, the greater the chance of sickness and ill-health.
The most important task for a filter is to reduce the amount of particles and pollutants in the ventilation air, but you can also reduce your energy costs if you look at which filters you have in the property by looking at the life cycle cost.
2020 was all about finding a new normal and continuity, followed by our need to change and adapt. Sustainability has always been an essential part of our process and it must be met by transforming the life cycle of the product, from manufacturing to waste to logistics and operations
