Date:7/29/2008

"We are very proud to be able to support the performance efforts of the USOC in Beijing," says Frank Hammes, President of IQAir. "The USOC is always looking for new and innovative ways to assist their athletes. This project will be the first time ultra-high efficiency air cleaning is used on a large scale to provide performance enhancement at an athletic event."

In November of 2007, a team of IQAir experts and the USOC traveled to Beijing to examine indoor spaces that would be used by USA athletes.

"Our goal is to ensure that we do everything possible to provide the very best training and performance advantages we can for our athletes," says Margaret Hunt, medical director for the USOC." We feel that while all athletes will appreciate our efforts with IQAir, athletes with asthma will especially benefit."

The project, dubbed "Operation Clean Air," will utilize IQAir's HealthPro Series room air purifiers in athletes' bedrooms. For large training areas, IQAir has designed special facility-sized portable and installed air cleaning systems. IQAir will also be adding ultra high efficiency filtration to the heating, air conditioning and ventilation (HVAC) systems in buildings. The air cleaning systems are tested and certified to filter ultra-fine particles down to 0.003 microns, smaller than the smallest virus. They are based on technology IQAir uses in hospitals around the world to filter particles as small as the SARS virus, MRSA, and tuberculosis.

In addition to eliminating ultra-fine particles, IQAir's systems will also provide comprehensive gas and chemical filtration.

"All large cities suffer from a wide range of gaseous pollutants. These are byproducts of traffic, manufacturing, industry, and other sources," says Hammes." Gases and chemicals require a different type of filtration than particulates. And while most consumer products do not address this important aspect of air cleaning, IQAir systems contain the most advanced gas-phase filtration available."

IQAir's air cleaning systems are currently being stored in Beijing for installation and placement for the USOC later this month.
