The SARS and flu pandemics during the last decade showed to the entire world that a medical airborne problem can have a significant social and economic impact.
The importance of IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) - or in other words the possibility to transmit pathogenic materials by air, became widely known to the public and the authorities.
CLEAN AIR IN HEALTH CARE FACILITIES
The increased amount of nosocomial infections, due to failed (air) hygiene ((Lidwell et Al), the increased threat of pandemics due to the intensified veterinary industry and globalization (Osterhaus et Al) and the increased microbiological resistant against antibiotics – forced medical staff and employees to think more on prevention instead of curation.
The importance of air - or in other words the possibility to transmit pathogenic materials by air, became more and more important on the agenda of the WHO.
CLEAN AIR IN INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS
The food industry is extremely creative, but new fundamental trends will shape its future by means of consumers demanding an absolute transparency, no compromise on health security, development of future clean labels and consumers are more educated and open for more natural food.
The importance of air quality in the food industry is often underestimated. A Steritube purifies the air in a production facility, freeing it from moulds, spores and bacteria. The air can no longer contaminate the products.
