Ozone is harmful to human health. Numerous studies have shown a link between exposures to ozone and decreased lung function, as well as asthma and premature mortality. Nearly one third of Americans live and work in counties with ozone concentrations that exceed the primary eight-hour average National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for ozone. The NAAQS concentration limit for ozone is meant to protect public health, including the health of sensitive populations such as children, people with asthma, and the elderly.
ASHRAE has published a literature study that promotes the use of carbon products where ozone may be a problem. We are not able to distribute the study as it is copyright material but we thought you should be aware that there is a progression to address air quality problems, specifically ozone, and Camfil is well-prepared to address these situations.
A synopsis follows: 1491- RP, Literature and Product Review Cost Benefit Analysis of Commercially Available Ozone Air Cleaning for HVAC Systems, developed a model to evaluate the costs and benefits of carbon filtration of ozone in various types of buildings. Major findings of this study are listed in the final report and indicate that commercially available activated carbon filters that are an economically viable strategy for improving health in commercial office buildings, long term health facilities, and K-12 schools. This applies to cities in non-attainment and attainment areas relating to the US EPA NAAQS ozone standards. The principal investigator was Richard Corsi with University of Texas-Austin.
