Freudenberg develops micronAir office Fine Dust Filter

Freudenberg Nonwovens is keeping the air clean and healthy in company and home offices with its micronAir office Fine Dust Filter for laser printers, faxes and copiers.

The micronAir office Fine Dust Filter consists of environmentally-neutral, fully recyclable nonwovens in a triple-layer construction, one layer of which contains microfibers that are electrostatically-charged - and these layers permanently bind even the finest respirable ultra-fine particles, irrespective of the specific chemical composition of the dust emitted.

The micronAir Fine Dust Filter has been fully certificated by the TÜV Nord and bears the following seal: "Effective protection against fine dust and toner particles".

"With the micronAir office Fine Dust Filter we are offering users an economical product that provides efficient protection from fine dust pollution in the office", explained Harald von Schischka, the Fine Dust Filter project leader at Freudenberg Nonwovens. "For us, clean air at work is an integral part of the Green IT."

It has been indisputably proven by various international studies that ultra-fine particles are emitted by laser printers, fax machines and copiers. In 2005, the University of Giessen in Germany initiated a "Toner Pilot Project" on behalf of the Bundesinstituts für Risikobewertung (BfR) to assess the effect of laser printers and copy machines on the quality of interior air.

The final report published in 08.01.08 stated that emissions by toner-based office appliances significantly increased the number of ultra-fine particles in interior air. According to the study, the increase in the concentration of fine dust can be assessed as being quantitatively alarming from a hygiene standpoint and may also be regarded as being questionable from the point of view of health." Based on this current knowledge and seen from the standpoint of precautionary aspects, the FIRA advocates preventative measures in this case.
