Clean Air Filtration Promises, Challenges and Opportunities
Join Dr. Iyad Al-Attar on March 7 for his new inspiring talk on Clean Air Filtration Promises, Challenges and Opportunities.
Dr. Al-Attar is the strategic director, instructor, and advisory board member of the Waterloo Filtration Institute. He is also Visiting Academic Fellow in the school of Aerospace, Transport, and Manufacturing at Cranfield University (UK), consulting for air quality and filter performance relevant to land-based gas turbines. He is a columnist in the EUROVENT Middle East newsletter, Climate Control Middle East Magazine, and ES Engineering, USA. He has authored many articles on air filter design, performance, particle characterization, and climate change. He received his engineering degrees (BSc, MSc, Ph.D.) from the University of Toronto (Canada), Kuwait University, and Loughborough University (UK), respectively. His area of expertise focuses on the design and performance of high-efficiency filters for HVAC and land-based gas turbine applications, particularly on the chemical and physical characterization of airborne particles.
