Experimental Apartment in Beijing Achieves 99% Purity of Indoor Air
Date:8/16/2008

ultra-fine particles are capable of penetrating lung tissue and entering the blood stream."

Hammes and Sullivan's original goal with Clean Air Apartment was to get the indoor air quality purity to above 95% on measurements 0.3 microns and larger. They themselves were surprised when they reached the 99% purity mark in individual rooms.

"When you consider that most air purifiers that people purchase at department stores improve you air quality by less than 5% in your home," says Hammes, "we were very happy when we approached the 90% purity mark. But then as the systems continued to clean already filtered air, we rapidly saw the numbers go up a percentage point or two each day. When we consistently reached 95% we were honestly able to say that we have better air here in our apartment in Beijing than you have in the Swiss Alps."

Hammes and Sullivan are no strangers to innovative air cleaning projects. They work for IQAir, the world leader in medical grade air filtration equipment. They built the first ever air-cleaned environment for a sick orangutan, and they have been creating America's healthiest homes on a popular ABC reality TV show for families with a variety of medical conditions. They even one day took the step of having Sullivan lock Hammes in a glass room and fire in tear gas with a grenade launcher to demonstrate the effectiveness of ultra-high efficiency air filtration.

"We've done many things over the last few years to try to demonstrate and educate people about what is really possible with good air cleaning," says Sullivan. "There are a lot of families out there with children with severe allergies and asthma, and we are trying to raise awareness about an innovative new technology that can genuinely improve people's lives."
