Freudenberg Filtration Technologies has expanded its partnership with BMW to supply micronAir cabin air filters for the 2009 BMW X5 Sports Activity Vehicle and X6 Sports Activity Coupe. FFT has supplied cabin air filter products to BMW since 1991 for the 3 Series, 5 Series and 7 Series vehicles.
micronAir’s particulate filter technology cleans the air entering the passenger cabin via the HVAC system by removing nearly 100% of pollen, road dust and other pollutants leading to an optimal cabin environment.
According to research, a moving automobile creates a “tunnel effect” that allow pollutants inside the vehicle to reach up to six times the concentration of outside air. With more than 60% of individuals suffering from respiratory problems and 75% concerned about air quality in their vehicles, micronAir cabin air filters offer improvements to interior air quality so drivers breathe in a healthier environment.
“We’ve been supplying filter products to BMW for more than 17 years and are pleased to be expanding our product offerings further to include our innovative micronAir cabin air filters on the BMW X5 and X6,” said Barry Kellar, president and CEO of Freudenberg Filtration Technologies. “BMW customers expect a high-performance driving experience, and we’ve enhanced that experience by providing them with premium air quality within the cabin.”
In addition to impressive air quality improvements in the cabin, micronAir cabin air filters are also environmentally-friendly and are the first and only automotive cabin air filters to receive Indoor Air Quality Certification by the Greenguard Environmental Institute, an industry independent, non-profit organization that conducts third-party certification of products for indoor air quality.
