A free symposium on air-filtration design and maintenance will be held Nov. 24 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec.

Presented by the university in collaboration with Camfil-Farr, provider of air-filtration and clean-air solutions, the technical session will cover particulate filtration, particularly how recent changes in American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers standards affect design and maintenance; full-scale testing of gas-phase filters; and how molecular filtration can be used to improve indoor-air quality and mitigate the threat of toxic gases.

The symposium will be presented by Fariborz Haghighat, PhD, Concordia Research Chair–Energy and Environment, and Michael Dobbs, vice president, Camfil Farr Canada Inc. Speakers will include Don Thornburg, an expert in HVAC regulatory standards; Hamid Kholafai, a researcher for Concordia University; and Chris Ecob, PhD, global manager of molecular filtration, Camfil AB.

The presentations will be given in English. All attendees will receive a booklet of the presentations in their preferred language at registration. French-speaking liaisons will be available during the question-and-answer period to translate questions and responses as required. Lunch will be provided.

Registration will be open until Nov. 18. To register, go to http://www.camfilfarr.com/cou_caen/concordia_symposium.cfm, or call 800-811-8780.
