HOPKINSVILLE, Ky., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Drivers of the Nissan Quest and their families can breathe easy when it comes to the air quality inside their vehicles. This is thanks to micronAir(R) combination filters - a product of Freudenberg Nonwovens' Filtration Division - which will now be featured on the Quest.
The combination filters from micronAir clean the air entering the cabin of the minivan through the HVAC system, reducing offensive odors as well as gaseous pollutants and particulate contaminants that are associated with various health concerns, including asthma, allergies and bronchitis.
"We are pleased to provide Nissan with our combination cabin air filters for the Quest minivan," said Barry F. Kellar, vice president and general manager, Freudenberg Nonwovens Filtration Division. "The filters trap a broad range of microscopic particles, harmful gases and strong odors to help make time in the car more pleasant and healthier."
"Studies show that the air inside a vehicle is more polluted than the air outside," Kellar added. "With increasing traffic congestion and longer commuting distances causing drivers to spend more time in their vehicles, having and maintaining a cabin air filter is becoming increasingly important."
