Freudenberg’s micronAir blue filter has won the FILTREX Innovation Award.
This was the first time that an Innovation Award has been given at the FILTREX conference for filter media and nonwovens, which was held in early April on Geneva, Switzerland.
 
The micronAir blue filter’s most striking feature is its four biocide- and nanosilver-free filter layers, which provide almost 100% protection against particulate matter and allergens. The prize was accepted by Alexander Oelsner, Director Sales Europe IAM at Freudenberg Filtration Technologies, who said that this development sees the company taking another important step in the process of sustainably protecting people against harmful gases and unpleasant odors.
 
The FILTREX Innovation Award was presented for the first time by EDANA, the world’s leading association for nonwovens. During the FILTREX conference, the five nominated companies presented their innovations to industry experts and conference participants, who subsequently voted for what they regarded as the most innovative filter solution 2017.
