Taking a stand

Panasonic has released a floor-standing air purifier, featuring the company’s trade-marked nanoeX technology.

“With the average person breathing in 18kg of air every day, air is an essential part of our lives,” says Panasonic. “The new range purifies the air with nanoeX, which actively cleans the air in the room, impacting upon airborne and surface impurities. OH radicals encapsulated in water neutralise micro-organisms and pollutants – inhibiting up to 99 per cent of bacteria, viruses, mould and allergens, both airborne and on surfaces, as well as reducing odours.”

The air purifier boasts a HEPA composite filter, de-formaldehyde technology, particulate matter indicator, a brightness sensor and childproof lock.

“Australians are now more conscious than ever about what they’re breathing into their bodies,” says Panasonic Product Marketing Manager Ginger Yu. “With our air purifier, they can create an atmosphere that feels clean and is clean. At Panasonic, our goal is to help make our customers’ lives easier while always maintaining the highest quality in all our products.”

The unit has been designed for rooms of up to 95m2.

Feasibility study of wastewater energy transfer for an existing campus building cluster

Feasibility study of wastewater energy transfer for an existing campus building cluster

The HVAC-related energy usage of a group of three existing buildings on a Canadian university campus (the “Cluster”) was simulated. Two scenarios were compared: (1) an ambient loop paired with conventional HVAC equipment (boiler plant and cooling tower), and (2) an ambient loop using wastewater energy transfer (“WET”). The study aimed to assess the feasibility of implementing WET as a heating and cooling method for cold-climate institutional buildings, as well as to measure the effects of WET implementation on energy usage, greenhouse gas emissions, and energy costs
