US Green Building Council
Camfil, developer of “completely green” air filters that give users five distinct environmental and cost advantages, has joined the US Green Building Council (USGBC) at the Product Manufacturer Level.
USGBC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit community of industry leaders committed to making “green” buildings universally available within a generation.
Camfil has a strong history of participation in organizations such as ASHRAE and the Institute of Environmental Sciences & Technology. Camfil offers its expertise to applicable factions of the USGBC, concentrating on improving indoor air quality and saving energy.
One area of concentration will be the Indoor Air Quality Procedure as defined in ASHRAE Standard 62.1. Another, longer-term goal of Camfil’s participation is to educate industry professionals regarding the ECI (Energy Cost Index) and Life Cycle Costing as effective and immediate ways to reduce energy use, while maintaining highest rated efficiency throughout the life of the filter.
Camfil is the only filter manufacturer to guarantee the energy-saving performance of its filters. It is also unique in providing a fully-equipped mobile lab to test pre-filter and final filter combinations under local temperature, humidity and contaminant conditions.
Camfil’s commitment to environmentally-favored, energy-conserving filter technologies is long-standing, comprehensive, and company-wide.
