    The Environment and Climate Professional Network is pleased to present the following webinar titled:

    Navigating the Issues of Air Filtration for Your Museums in a COVID Environment and Beyond  

    November 23, 2020  3:00pm EST

    As museums grapple with the decisions of reopening and addressing short-term and long-term issues related to the facility's air quality, they face a myriad of options that are being touted by manufacturers, consultants, and other people they rely on for guidance.  One issue that has arisen during the COVID-19 pandemic, is the understanding that the virus can move throughout a space in an aerosolized form. This Webinar will attempt to explain the following:

    ·        How aerosols behave in the air 

    ·        What are the various systems on the market to address the concerns of virus remediation?  

    ·        What is the impact each system may have on your collections?

    ·         What is the impact each system may have on your sustainable profile or energy usage?

    ·        Who should you turn to for guidance?

    ·        What questions should you be asking of your consultants?

    ·        Who from your organization should you have at the table reviewing various systems?

    Our speakers are:
