ASL’s participation in the Automotive Testing Expo with lab partners SGS coincides with the announcement of our new car cabin air quality standard
Next week, the Automotive Testing Expo will be back to a full-capacity, full-size show in Stuttgart. The Automotive Testing Expo is the world’s leading international expo for every aspect of automotive testing, development and validation technologies.
We are delighted that our participation at the event with our lab partners SGS coincides with the launch of our New Car Cabin Air Quality Standard for the Automotive Industry. The Advanced Air Cleaner available on certain Volvo Cars vehicles is the first full automotive cabin air filtration system to be CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly® by ASL to this standard.
New car cabin air quality standard
The Advanced Air Cleaner, part of the air purification technology available on the Volvo 60 and 90 series models, was tested to our new, peer reviewed, scientific standard.
We only partner with best in class, specialised laboratories to ensure that products are stringently and independently tested before certification is awarded and we would like to thank our partners InBio and SGS for two years of fruitful innovation, research and collaboration.
We are very much looking forward to meeting up with SGS at their booth and welcome the opportunity to meet with potential new clients. Our CSO, Dr. John Ryan, and team members Ingo Weinhold and Chirag Malhotra will be participating at the event and will be available to connect at the SGS booth.
“Advances in sensor technology and smart vehicles mean that how and when we use our cars is changing,” Dr. John McKeon, CEO of ASL, shares. “Just as air pollution and indoor air quality have become a requirement for healthy homes, car cabin air quality is now also under scrutiny. We congratulate Volvo Cars on their innovative smart sensor and advanced air filtration system which has been tested and certified. Asthma affects an estimated 300 million individuals worldwide and it is likely that by 2025 a further 100 million may be affected2, so the need for scientifically proven air quality technology offering a more comfortable and healthier driving experience is clear.”
