Dr. Iyad Al-Attar Addressing Air Quality Challenges at Eurovent Summit 2022



"The time for action is now," states Dr. Iyad Al-Attar, WFI Strategic Director at the EUROVENT Summit 2022 (October 25-28) in Antalya, Turkey.


  • Tremendous pollution requires filtration-intensive solutions to render the built environment "safe to occupy."

  • We cannot keep old schools of facility management afloat as they continue to embrace the theology of cutting corners, maintenance shortcuts, and thwarting any air quality enhancements.

  • Inappropriate and insufficient air filtration defeats the intended purpose of enhancing Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).

  • Pollutants are not just Particulate Matter (PM); they include gaseous and bioaerosols, which would influence the corresponding air filter selection.

  • Maintenance technicians are challenged and often challenged alone as they lack the appropriate tools and conditions to make a difference in air quality.

  • Initially, when filtration experts addressed air quality and filtration initiatives, decision-makers decided to leave the conversation rather than lead it. As a result, when the pandemic came about, we needed to flee rather than fight through curfews and lockdowns.

  • The time for action is now through a purpose that is consciencely heard, equally shared, and professionally served.

Meet Dr. Al-Attar at the Waterloo Filtration Institute 2022 Annual Conference (WFI 2022), December 6-7, 2022, 8:00 am -12:00 pm EST. He will address "Sustainable air filtration and HVAC maintenance measures for healthier built environments."
