    Since the beginning of the worldwide COVID 19 pandemic, the demand for mobile air purifiers has increased significantly. These are now increasingly used in a wide variety of public areas such as daycare centers, schools and government offices, but also in many companies and in private environments. The aim of air purification is to control inhalation exposure. At Fraunhofer WKI, we investigate air purification technologies and test regarding their efficiency in terms of filtering or inactivating viruses, health-critical gaseous compounds such as formaldehyde and other air. This webinar provides an overview of common air purification technologies, current approaches to efficiency testing, and use in real indoor environments.
