Design and Development of Filter Media to Control Airborne Sub-micron "Nano" Particles

Abstract: Sub-micron _nano_ particles raise concerns for both our everyday indoor and outdoor air quality from a health perspective as well as the contamination of our industrial manufacturing processes. This presentation will review the different classifications of airborne particles, provide various industry standards used to quantify or rate the removal efficiencies, and detail new nonwoven technologies which can be utilized in the filtration and contamination control of airborne sub-micron _nano_ particles.
