Project BREATHE makes waves (and clean air) at Workplace & FM Asia Summit, Shanghai

BREATHE station at IFMA Shanghai, 2014PureLiving introduced Project BREATHE to the recently concluded IFMA Summit in Shanghai, to see it rapidly become a conversation piece at the event.

A BREATHE ‘totem’ stand and clean air filtration systems were set up in a dedicated ‘Workplace of the Future’ space at the event – a showcase of the prerequisites and best practices to creating the ideal workplace. While the filtration system ensured that the indoor air quality levels met and exceeded international standards (US EPA and WHO), the BREATHE totem with an Indoor Air Quality monitor demonstrated the results in real-time.

Attendees at the conference came to the demo Workplace for a breath of fresh air and information on the breakthrough IAQ monitoring technology and the BREATHE strategy.
