Camfil Italy has donated air purifiers to the Il Pertini Cultural Center in Cinisello Balsamo in the Italian region of Lombardy.
It is regarded as a gesture of generosity and attention to the city from Camfil that has been operating in the area for the last 46 years.
The air purifiers have been placed in the study room in one of the buildings where many young students and professionals spend hours studying.
Following an inspection, Camfil proposed the installation of three air purifiers in the study room. The clean air solutions, capable of purifying the air from pollen, bacteria, viruses, particulate matter, ozone, chemicals, and other harmful contaminants, are the same ones adopted by the French and Spanish regional authorities in the canteens, laboratories, and study rooms of their schools. Silent and with very low energy consumption, the air purification systems make 16 changes per day of purified air thanks to HEPA H14 filters, with a certified filtration efficiency of 99.995% even on the smallest particles in the air.
'We are humbled to have donated three air purifiers to the reading room of the Pertini Cultural Center which plays a central role in promoting culture, socialization, and creativity in the Cinisello Balsamo community. It is an important contribution as the local communities and public places have remained under strict restrictions due to the pandemic. Our clean air solutions ensure a healthy and safe indoor environment,' said Luciano Rogato, managing director of Camfil Italy.
'I thank Camfil for this donation to our city library which is a hub for so many young people for studying, reading, and as a meeting place. Due to the health emergency, which is still ongoing, the Pertini was closed for some time and we know how much discomfort this has created for many students and young professionals. The installation of these machines will allow more comfortable and healthy use of the indoor environments,' said Mayor Giacomo Ghilardi.
A new study released by Buildings Performance Institute Europe (BPIE) shows that improving the insulation of existing residential buildings in the EU would significantly contribute to securing the bloc’s energy independence and achieving he EU target of reaching climate neutrality by 2050.
Improved insulation of EU residential buildings would result in a reduction of energy demand for heating in buildings by 777 TWh, or 44% compared to 2020: 46% in gas savings, 44% in heating oil savings and 48% in coal savings.
