This module and all other modules in the Occupational and Nanotechnology Health and Safety Series require that you first complete PubH X600: Occupational and Nanotechnology Health and Safety Pre-course Survey  There are 19 modules in the series. You will only need to complete the survey one time regardless of the number of modules you chose to complete.

This module explores the technologies used to remove nanoparticles from air and their effectiveness.


By the end of the module, learners should be able to:

  • List the main technologies used to remove particles from moving air
  • Identify air cleaning technologies that are effective for nanoparticles
  • Describe the mechanisms by which fibrous air filters capture particles
  • Explain why fibrous air filters can capture nanoparticles with high efficiency
