One major step towards significantly improving indoor air quality is the upgrading of a building’s HVAC and filter to one that is rated at MERV 13 level or higher. MERV stands for ‘minimum efficiency reporting value’, and a MERV 13 filter is effective at capturing more than 75% of particles sized 0.3 to 1 microns which means it is reasonably effective against mould spores, bacteria and smoke.  However, the Sars Cov 2 virus and Influenza particle size is around 0.1 microns, so whilst a MERV 14 filter is definitely a...

What can antimicrobial coatings do for public transport?

Whilst surface disinfecting is a reactive method proven to eliminate contamination, unfortunately, surfaces have to be disinfected on such a regular basis to be effective it is not realistic or sustainable. This is especially difficult in mass transportation when large numbers of individuals may be using the same vehicle in... Read More
