NDSU improves building air quality

North Dakota State University recently completed extensive work to improve air quality in all campus buildings. 

The project’s primary component is the addition of bipolar ionization equipment for all air handlers on campus. The ions created by the equipment help minimize microscopic bacteria, fungi and viruses. Studies have shown ionization equipment can be an effective tool in reducing common viruses.

Portable systems with similar ionization technology and HEPA filtration systems were placed in spaces on campus with no air handling.  

“What’s great about the bipolar ionization systems is they are low power consumption and low maintenance,” said Mike Ellingson, NDSU Facilities Management director. “That will be a valuable tool for helping reduce the spread of many viruses, including COVID-19.”
