Lifa Air – a major contributor to academic research. Two innovative indoor air quality studies will be presented at the Clima 2007 Conference
Helsinki, 10.05.2007 – LIFA AIR Ltd will be presenting 2 scientific studies in Clima 2007 Conference in Helsinki from 10-13 June 2007. The conference is the most significant event of the year in the indoor air quality field ¬– both for academic and business groups. The conference will focus on using scientific data to find practical solutions for the improvement of indoor air quality – and to highlight the crucial role that clean indoor air plays in securing healthier living.
LIFA AIR Ltd has been an active supporter of the two studies that will be presented at the conference – both in terms of funding and expertise. These studies contribute significantly to the ongoing discussion and current understanding of the importance of clean indoor air, and especially the importance of ultrafine particles and how to reduce them significantly. Furthermore we are continuing our active role in several other technical papers and by attending several work shops during the conference.

Zephyr - air purifier for the workstation
Many people suffer from poor indoor air quality – not only people suffering
from allergies, but also healthy people working in spaces where air quality is
poor for various reasons. To address these needs, Martela has developed, in
co-operation with the Finnish company Lifa Air Ltd, an anti-allergy workstation
that provides clean air and significantly improves working conditions.
The air purifier, which can be integrated into office furniture, cleans the air
more efficiently than conventional air conditioners and their filters. The air
conditioning system can be installed in the workstation and provides a personal
zone of clean air, removing even the tiniest particles from the inhaled air.
The system is the most efficient for cleaning the physical, chemical and biological
irritants from the air of conventional office spaces. A single anti-allergy workstation
provides clean breathing air for up to four people. The clean air zone consists of the
air purifier unit, the clean air supply and the air removal system

LIFA AIR and HALTON MARINE integrated their knowledge and products in ship ventilation
Airborne diseases, such as SARS, Legionella and Tuberculosis, and
recently substantially increased potential threat of biological or
chemical terrorist attacks, have also increased the need for a safe
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) solution. Halton Marine, the world's leading
suppliers of marine and offshore HVAC equipment, rises to the challenge
by signing a distribution agreement with a Finnish-based company
Oy Lifa Air Ltd.
Over the past years Oy Lifa Air Ltd. has systematically developed
in co-operation with Technical Research Centre of Finland, VTT,
advanced low flow-resistance, high efficiency Lifa supply air
filters which are capable for removing both particulate and
gaseous contaminants from the supply air, without extensive system
modifications. The Lifa High Security Filter system is specifically
designed to provide protection against both biological and chemical
agents. Equipped with the Nanoelectric UV light, it is the only
scientifically tested and proven filter solution to be effective
against any airborne virus or bacteria, including sizes below 0,3 microns,
far above the current industry practice and industry standards.
The Halton-Lifa High Security Filtering system can be installed as a
stand-alone system in the supply air ductwork, or it can be integrated
in Halton's MCM fancoils to remove and kill contaminants from the recycled
air inside the cabins.
By signing the exclusive distribution agreement, Halton Marine brings
to a market a revolutionary solution to further improve and protect
the quality of indoor air in passenger ships, offshore platforms and
vessels as well as in naval vessels.
For further information on Halton-Lifa High Security Filtering system

Terrorist interest in chemical and biological weapons growing
Western Countries Are Threatened by Unconventional Terror Attacks
A terror attack on a major Western city using chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN)
technology is only a matter of time, says the head of Britain’s domestic intelligence service MI5 Eliza
Manningham-Buller in a conference in London countering terrorism.
Violent extremists are becoming more sophisticated in developing non-conventional weapons thanks to
the help from “renegade scientists”. The rogue scientists have cooperated with extremist groups including
Al-Qaeda. The widespread technical knowledge makes for example a crude chemical attack in a major Western
The threat of some unconventional attack is realistic. Even though extremists have so far preferred
old-fashioned bomb attacks, the next attack could happen by using chemical, biological, radiological
or nuclear technology, states Manningham-Buller. MI5 takes the discovery or traces of the deadly toxin
ricin as a sober warning: It demonstrates the interest in unconventional weapons. (Reuters)
Lifa Air 3G and Lifa High Security Filters: Solution to terrorist and other indoor air threats
Terrorists may use the ventilation system of a building or other public place as a channel to
spread biological warfare agents, nerve gases or other hazardous substances. Current ventilation systems
are a very easy and efficient means of spreading any airborne threat within minutes to all the spaces
attached to the ventilation system as there were no practical and cost effective filtration solutions before.
SARS, which, to find anything positive, helped us to understand and accept at least a little bit about
the importance of good hygiene and Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) related matters also.
SARS was just one problem and similar or even more hazardous diseases are more than likely to evolve
and outbreak anytime sooner or later. Therefore people have to be protected against airborne nano-size
particles or gaseous contaminants.
Lifa Air 3G and Lifa High Security Filters provide the best available solution for saving valuable human
lives and protects the right to breath healthy indoor air without feeling any fear. The scientifically
tested and proven new technology developed with the cooperation of Helsinki University of Technology,
Hong Kong Polytechnic University and VTT Technical Research Center of Finland is now available for all
the interested to achieve good and/or secured IAQ with a reasonable costs.
