Limiting the Ozone Emissions from Indoor Air Cleaning Devices
All portable indoor air cleaning devices sold in California after October 18, 2010 must be certified by the California Air Resources Board. To be certified, air cleaners must be tested for electrical safety and ozone emissions, and meet an ozone emission concentration limit of 0.050 parts per million. For the purpose of compliance with this regulation only a single model of indoor air cleaning device within a model group, if one exists, must be evaluated under the test methods. Testing to determine compliance with the requirements of this article, shall be performed following the ANSI/UL Standard 867 or ANSI/UL Standard 507, whichever is applicable, in their entirety, which are hereby incorporated by reference as defined in Section 94801.
Global Air Treatment Products Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic
COVID-19 has significantly disrupted all the industries including infrastructure, automotive, manufacturing, and others. To combat COVID-19 pandemic, several countries have announced lockdowns and this has significantly impacted air purifiers manufacturers as the facilities across the globe were temporarily shut down. On the supply side, the business of air treatment products such as air purifiers was severely hampered as most of the countries had announced lockdown globally.
