The International Ventilation Congress AirVent

On February 12, 2020 the International Ventilation Congress AirVent ran successfully already in the third time within the Aquatherm Moscow exhibition. The event brought together designers and business professionals, engineers and architects on the one platform, which allowed to exchange technical information, new ideas and discuss the latest achievements in the field of engineering equipment of buildings of the future.

Congress relevance

Distinctive feature of the Congress is the investigation of global issues such as climate change, engineering technologies for solving environmental problems, energy shortages and sustainable development, jointly with practical solutions, increasing comfort and preserving people's health - indoor air quality, modern technologies for HVAC systems for residential and public buildings, energy efficiency of engineering systems.

The microclimate quality, discussed within the Congress, is one of the most important themes nowadays. According to the research of the Institute of Health IHME (Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation), poor air quality is always among the main negative factors that increase mortality and disability all over the world. It was already proven that polluted air increases the risk of the development of cardiac and chronic respiratory diseases, asthma, lung infections and cancer. For instance, according to IHME data, in 2017 bad air quality was determined as the fifth by magnitude risk factor for mortality in the world and caused about 4.9 million deaths.

Congress Program

The leading world experts from Russia, France, USA, Great Britain, Germany and Turkey smade the presentations at the congress. The scientific organizer and moderator of the congress was Marianna Brodach, professor at the Moscow Architectural Institute, vice president of “ABOK” (brodatch@abok.ru). Presentations were made on a wide range of topics related simultaneously to improving the quality of the environment, increasing energy efficiency and solving environmental problems:
