  1. If we all believe that IAQ is so critical to health, why aren’t there more regulations or enforcement of industry standards?

  2. With increasing concerns/regulations to ban PFAS/PTFE, what is the impact on the filtration industry, as PTFE membranes are popularly used for high-efficiency air filters? How should we, as an industry, prepare for it?

  3. In what products do you see a bigger opportunity to evolve or improve in air filtration?

  4. What filtration standards do you typically see on the process side?

  5. How do we begin to address some of the large global problems in Water and Air with emerging filtration solutions?

  6. One of the most important topics when we talk about protecting the environment with filtration is how to properly dispose of or recycle expired/used or clogged filters. Do you have any thoughts about that?

  7. Are the water and air challenges comparable? Which should we be most concerned about?

  8. How do we bring more young engineers into the filtration space and help them navigate this journey through filtration?
