Emerging Trends & New Technologies on Indoor Air Purification (IAP)

Wednesday, April 7, 2021,

A serious concern, indoor air quality assessment became as important as pure water and routine health checkup. This is not only applicable to home but also for bigger premises like hospitals, where VOCs and particulates are inhaled by everyone.  To evaluate the air quality following efforts are suggested by experts 

  1. Air cleaning using efficient air purifier – by devices like Molekule  
  2. Testing of air quality based on reduced form factors approach – by smart technology  
  3. Exploring impact of air quality on health – by advanced biotechnology 
  4. Calibration and validation of air purification technology – via systematic approaches  
  5. Making policies and successful execution – by public & private partnership  

This serious issue is the focus of Academy of Scientist for Industrial Research Education (ASIRE, Est. 2021,, a platform for inventors and investors, and proposing some of useful alternatives through a global webinar on Emerging Trends & New Technologies on Indoor Air Purification (IAP). 

Speakers :

Chris Hogan

He is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Minnesota.  He received his Ph.D. from Washington University in Saint Louis in 2008 and was a Postdoctoral Associate at Yale University before joining the University of Minnesota in 2009.  His research work focuses on gas-phase chemical physics, aerosol science, and particle technology. He started studying aerosols in 2003, first involved in studies of understanding how to sample and study airborne virus transport, following which he focused on electro-spray ionization, ion mobility-mass spectrometry, and more recently, fundamental aerosol transport physics, and again back to virus aerosols.  He has published more than 115 papers on these topics.  Five of his former Ph.D. students and Postdocs are working in tenure track positions in the US, India, Australia, and China.  He is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Aerosol Science.

Randy Cooper

He joined AHAM in July 2016 as AHAM’s Vice President of Technical Operations & Standards. In this role, he is the staff leader on a host of technical and regulatory issues, including liaisons with safety and performance standards organizations. He is the staff coordinator for technical activities on recycling, product safety, and technical trade issues and coordinates AHAM’s Product Safety and Liability Conferences.Randy is a veteran appliance industry leader with 27 years of experience with Whirlpool and Maytag prior to coming to AHAM.  He has held leadership positions in product design, research and development, global product approval, design for product safety, and standards.   Randy is also a certified Blackbelt in LeanSigma.

Phil Myers

He is the Senior Principal Research Engineer at Molekule. He received a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of South Florida in 2015. As a researcher at Molekule, he has assisted in the development of novel air cleaning systems, designed and implemented testing methods for air cleaners, and supervised field investigations of air cleaner performance. Dr. Myers has over 10 years of experience in research and engineering analysis in the areas of indoor air and environmental quality. 

Reviews :

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ It was well organized and an informative webinar especially during such a pandemic , one needs to understand the consequences of air pollution.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ People need to be aware of the development of such technologies in present day scenario when AQI is reaching the danger levels in one city after another. It was quite informative in that sense. Futuristic approaches can include Possibility/availability of technologies that can trap such particles that cause smog at the source itself (say at industrial levels).

⭐⭐⭐⭐ The webinar was really informative. It was great to hear from all the speakers. A big thanks to all the organizers too. Thank-you once again.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Webinar was quite interesting and knowledgeable for us. I’m quite satisfied in going through this webinar . Hopefully it will bring us good knowledgeable aspects for the future .

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ It was very interesting and informative. All the speakers were very good and explained very well about the assigned topics.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Speakers were quite diligent.Every aspect was focused from topic . Really loved hearing this informative webinar.But the comments in the starting were really disturbing especially from Diljeet.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ It was amazing webinar sharing very useful information specially in pandemic era.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Very informative, touched the roots of the problems.
