LightAir vinner pris på erkända IFMA den 12:e Nov
Clean and virus-free Health[+] air concept rewarded by the International
Facility Management Association.
The Health+ offer from LightAir, the Swedish cleantech company, has
received the International Facility Management Association’s annual
Nordic Innovation Award.
LightAir’s prize-winning concept delivers double protection through both
active and passive air purification, using two different technologies. 1 The
active air purification, using patented IonFlow technology, is receiving a
lot of attention during the pandemic, since research by the renowned
Karolinska Institutet has proved that it neutralizes 97% of airborne viruses,
while they are still in the air.2 Customers in the Nordic region mainly
benefit from the Health+ concept through a subscription offering.

air quality at workplaces and schools. Facility Management is an industry
