Our distinguished speakers panel experts will answer your questions live online. Chris Muller, Director of IEQ Technical Services for AAF Flanders will address Air filtration technologies for clean indoor & outdoor air and what are the requirements for IAQ control and healthy buildings. It will cover ambient air quality, current and developing enhanced air cleaning technologies, and methods being used to evaluate the effectiveness of these various technologies. Tyler Smith, Executive Director – Healthy Buildings, Johnson Controls, will address the multiple value propositions of smart buildings and how technology can be leveraged to ensure IAQ, wellness and decarbonization are an “and” proposition, not an “or” proposition. Dr. John Zhang, a Lead Specialist of 3M will present a recent study on indoor airborne particle control by HVAC filters and room air purifiers to help us understand the relationship between filter efficiency and CADR (clean air delivery rate) and reduction of the PM (particulate matter) concentration in a house.
