Below is our recent interview with Glory Dolphin Hammes, CEO at IQAir

Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?

A: For nearly 60 years, IQAir has been the leading air quality technology company, ensuring communities worldwide have access to clean air. We developed the first indoor air quality products and have launched a series of products over the years to assist people with longer, healthier lifestyles.

Every year, 7 million people die from air pollution, and billions suffer from the effects of poor air. Our passion is to change this narrative by empowering individuals, organizations, and governments to improve air quality through information, collaboration, and technology solutions. As a Swiss-based company, we design, engineer, and manufacture all products in-house in Switzerland and Germany.

Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?

A: In anticipation of IQAir’s 60th anniversary, we recently introduced the newest product to our line of high-performance air purifiers, Atem X. A smart, slim, bionic air purifier made to filter viruses, bacteria, mold spores, allergens, smoke, fine dust, and ultra-fine particles.

Designed in Switzerland and made in Germany, Atem X has a removal rate of 99.99% for viruses such as the human coronavirus (HCoV-229E), the influenza A virus (H1N1) and the enterovirus 71 (EV71).

Atem X air purifiers feature innovative BionicCore filter technology, which utilizes an orbital architecture that moves air more efficiently in a more diminutive form. It’s a highly efficient design that provides the cleanest air possible for larger rooms up to 1650 sq. ft.

Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?

A: IQAir offers a wide range of air quality products. We have the #1 global air quality app that allows people to check their local air quality. We provide air quality solutions such as indoor and outdoor air quality monitors, air purifiers, both portable and inline HVAC purifiers, as well as the most comfortable FFP2 facemask. Here’s more information about our Atem X:

  • Slim, beautiful design: only 10 inch (254 mm) thin and with perfectly round, bionic minimalist design.
  • Powerful, quiet air cleaning: with a Smoke CADR of 422 cfm at 65 dB(A), Atem X powerfully and quietly removes a wide range of pollution particles.
  • Sensor-based, automatic operation: PM2.5 and CO2 sensors allow Atem X to clean air automatically based on measured air quality.
  • Smart app integration: Atem X can be remotely controlled and provides advanced air quality data and usage statistics via the IQAir AirVisual air quality app.
  • Energy Star certifiedt: Advanced fan technology and fully automated demand-based air purification make Atem X exceptionally energy efficient.

Q: What can we expect from your company in next 6 months? What are your plans?

A: Early 2023 we will be bringing out our World Air Quality report, in collaboration with Greenpeace. This is the most comprehensive report which, will include data from 127 countries. Find out which countries/cities are the cleanest or most polluted in this report.

In response to WHO’s new standards, we have an air quality advisory committee working on developing global AQI standards. Currently, IQAir’s AirVisual platform uses the US AQI globally and this might change, as the US AQI standards haven’t been updated in several years. Stay tuned for the new World AQI.

Our network of air quality monitors is expanding into countries where there are no public air quality monitors.
