- New COVID-19 preparedness plan involves renewed focus on indoor air quality (“IAQ”)
- Initiative includes campaign to promote ways to improve IAQ as well as financial assistance to state, local governments and schools for HVAC system upgrades
- Kronos AIR 5G(R) Air Purifiers have been tested, confirmed as the most effective clean-air solution on the market
Indoor air quality (“IAQ”) is coming under closer scrutinization under the Biden administration, according to a new plan (https://nnw.fm/p7kd9). According to a recent White House fact sheet, “The Biden Administration and Congress have provided hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funds that can be used in schools, public buildings, and other settings to improve indoor air quality” (https://nnw.fm/X77PW).
The correlation between indoor air quality and good health is one that Kronos Advanced Technologies (OTC: KNOS) embraced long ago, as the company develops and sells a variety of disruptive, advanced, state-of-the-art air filtration and purification systems that fully remove harmful allergens, bacteria, viruses (including the flu), and even gasses from indoor breathing spaces.
“The Biden administration plans a renewed focus on indoor air quality as part of its latest response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic,” reported the ACHR News. “The White House’s IAQ initiative was broadly outlined in its 97-page National COVID-19 Preparedness Plan, which was issued in early March and referred to briefly by President Joe Biden in his State of the Union address.
“Steps include a publicity campaign to promote ways to improve IAQ, financial assistance to state and local governments and schools for HVAC system upgrades, and a ‘Clean Air in Buildings Challenge’ to encourage building owners and managers and building engineers to adopt strategies to improve air quality in their buildings,” the article continued. “The plan pledges IAQ guidance and technical resources for such efforts.”
According to the White House plan, “strong ventilation practices can reduce the number of virus particles and contaminants in the air, and thereby reduce the risk of virus or disease transmission.”
The article noted that the Biden administration “will work with Congress to secure the necessary funding” for the initiatives, with state and local governments and school districts encouraged to use American Rescue Plan money to improve their air ventilation and filtration systems.
Kronos Advanced Technologies stands to benefit from the new initiative. The company’s Kronos AIR 5G(R) Air Purifiers are some of the most powerful and effective air purifiers available today. The devices, which come in three models, feature Kronos’ own patented, medical-grade technology, which has been tested and confirmed as the most effective clean-air solution on the market. According to Kronos, its purifiers filter particles down to .0146 micron (.0146μm), far beyond the 3 microns (0.3μm) of a traditional HEPA filter. In addition, Kronos purifiers not only collect but also destroy 99.99% of all airborne bacteria, mold and virus particles.
Unlike traditional HEPA systems that collect pollutants on filters, which can grow mold and bacteria with time, Kronos’ patented technology collects and eliminates harmful particles, depositing them on easy-to-clean collecting plates. This process reduces the risk of harmful particles in the air and eliminates the need to replace costly HEPA filters every month.
KNOS recently acquired an 85,000-square-foot West Virginia manufacturing campus that will be retrofitted to produce advanced, proprietary air-purification devices and other wellness products (https://nnw.fm/h1P8n).
