An air filter trial was recently carried out for Imperial College, London by ABS Consulting and Camfil.  The Filter Trial project was carried out on Air Handling Units (AHUs) in the Sir Alexander Fleming & Biochemistry buildings at the London Campus.   The results demonstrated substantial scope for energy saving of some 293 tonnes CO2 per annum.

Imperial College London is a science-based institution with a reputation for excellence in teaching and research and consistently rated amongst the world's best universities.  The project was part of the University’s CONCOM programme.  CONCOM is Imperial College's programme for continuous optimisation of plant and services, a programme which cuts costs, cuts waste and improves efficiency within the building environments at the university campus.  The programme contributes to the College’s target to reduce its carbon footprint by 20% in 2014.

The project scope was to set up trials for replacing existing filters with energy efficient air filters in several Air Handling Units (AHU’s) across the campus.   Existing filters were replaced with Camfil’s energy efficient filters, with a higher surface area and the filter positioning arrangement was changed.  The trials were a success and realised a 7% savings.  ABS Consulting and Imperial College are now rolling out this process across the campus, expecting savings of about £50,000 a year or about 250 tonnes of co2.
