The University of Miami was looking to rid the air of contaminants and reduce the amount of outside-air ventilation required at its UHealth Fitness and Wellness Center.
The fight against air pollution is a costly battle being waged on a global scale. Famously catastrophic, the overwhelming air pollution in China has only worsened since receiving the media spotlight in Beijing for the 2008 Olympics.
China represents an extreme example of what our world could become. Click here to read article: https://cleantechnica.com/2017/07/04/air-pollution-solutions-via-innovative-cleantech/
It's no secret that human activity and energy usage have contributed substantially to climate change by adding pollutants to the environment. Most climate scientists agree this is linked to the current global warming trend and expansion of the "greenhouse effect" -- warming that results when the atmosphere traps heat radiating from Earth toward space.
As new research uncovers the bottom-line benefits of clean air in the workplace, experts say the time is right for HR to make the argument that the benefits far outweigh the incremental costs of providing a healthy indoor environment.

With summer temperatures around the corner, now is the time for you to make preparations for your building(s) to beat the summer heat. Did you know that heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) costs account for 44 percent of energy consumption in all U.S. commercial buildings and 53 percent in U.S. office buildings? Cooling the outside air coming into a building during hot summer weather requires greater energy consumption, which means higher costs.

enVerid’s HLR® Technology Wins Money-Saving Product Award from BUILDINGS Magazine
Award program recognizes smart solutions for commercial buildings
With its HLR technology, the HLR 1000E captures and cleans indoor air of contaminants including carbon dioxide, formaldehyde, VOCs, and particulate matter. Lowers upfront HVAC costs and reduces energy consumption by 20-40%, with improved IAQ providing better health, productivity, and occupant satisfaction. Cleaning indoor air rather than constantly replacing it with outdoor air reduces HVAC energy usage and yields a 60-80% reduction in outdoor air needed for ventilation.
