Air Quality Challenge aims to identify and implement innovative materials, processes, products or services
that contribute to improving air quality (IAQ) while reducing energy consumption.
Improving air quality
• Filtration and sanitation systems
• Measurements/sensors collecting IAQ dat
• Tools for measuring air flow rates while taking into account the comfort of the building's occupants
Improving the Energy Efficiency
of IAQ Systems
• Energy-efficient and highly performing systems
• Noise reduction of equipments (production or terminals)
• Improvement of air renewal flow rate with controlled energy consumption
• Reduced energy consumption at constant air change rate
• Extension of the performance time between two maintenance operations
• Improvement of the maintainability of Air Handling Units (to facilitate maintenance and lower costs)
• Integration of functions in air renewal systems with controlled maintenance: synergies source of energy savings (e.g.: thermodynamic double-flow ventilation with facilitated use and maintenance).
• Nature-inspired processes positively impacting indoor air quality
• Filtrating/capturing pollutants in closed environments
All stakeholders (start-ups, SMEs, laboratories, large companies, associations, etc.) based in the European Union (including the following countries: Switzerland, United Kingdom, Iceland, Norway) can apply, as long as they own
the intellectual property of the proposed solution and have the freedom to exploit it.
The solutions must be mature or under development (TRL 4, 5), allowing them to be tested
in full scale.
The intellectual property of the proposed solution belongs to the candidate structure or the latter has complete freedom
to exploit it.
European Union countries to which are added the following : Switzerland, United Kingdom, Iceland, Norway.
