RIVERDALE, N.J., July 9, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Joining seven other prominent Swedish companies, Camfil -- the world's leading provider of clean air solutions -- was recognized for its long-term presence and success in Belgium.  Ulrika Sundberg, Sweden's ambassador to Belgium, presented the awards at a recent ceremony in Brussels.

Camfil, which in 2014 celebrated its 40th year of operations in Belgium, has been at the forefront of providing innovative, efficient clean air solutions to key industries in that nation, including the pharmaceutical, food processing, and energy sectors. It has specialized, too, in low-energy air filters for the ventilation systems of commercial and public buildings.

The award winners were selected by CIDIC (Cercle International Diplomatique et Consulaire), the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Belgium and Luxembourg, and the Brussels Diplomatic Academy.  In addition to Camfil, the companies receiving the prize were Atlas Copco, Electrolux, Ericsson, IKEA, Medicover, Mölnlycke Health Care, and Volvo.

Belgium was one of the first countries in which Camfil established an international subsidiary -- and one where the company has long been active in promoting energy efficiency and the health and economic benefits of improved indoor air quality.  Today Camfil participates in key initiatives including the Ecodesign Directive and the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), and regularly engages with EU policymakers, NGOs, and industry associations to foster the development of energy efficiency measures in the building sector.

Camfil Energy efficient air filters -- which can mitigate climate change and dramatically reduce the health risks of indoor air pollution -- have long been a priority, and a differentiator, for Camfil. Leveraging its half dozen global research centers, the company has developed next-generation air filters that not only do a better job removing harmful particles from the air, but require less energy, and less frequent replacement, than more traditionally designed products. Indeed, a typical Camfil customer can reduce its HVAC energy costs by 20 percent, its installation costs by 50 percent, and its disposal costs by 70 percent -- all while boosting indoor air quality.

Camfil is honored to be recognized for its work in Belgium -- work that will help bring the improved health and sustainability that is the true prize, and one that can be shared by all.

The world leader in air filtration systems, Camfil provides clean air solutions for hospitals, hotels, office buildings, educational institutions, and pharmaceutical and biotech companies.  We provide the tools to achieve sustainability, maintain high air quality, and reduce airborne infections -- all while lowering total cost of ownership.  Camfil customers go green without ever sacrificing performance.  For more information, visit us online at, or call us toll-free at 888.599.6620.
