Main Meeting Presentation Description: 

·        The presentation provides a brief review of ASHRAE 62.1 and how to apply cold plasma technology to reduce ventilation requirements, by up to 75%, in commercial applications. The method in which cold plasma reduces particles, kills pathogens and reduces odors will be discussed.

Key Learning Objectives:

  1. To understand both methods in ASHRAE 62 for determining ventilation rates
  2. To become familiar with cold plasma technology 
  3. Understand how cold plasma technology reduces first cost and annual energy consumption in commercial applications when combined with the ASHRAE 62 IAQ Procedure
  4. Understand how the technology reduces maintenance and improves IAQ
