UV And Indoor Air Quality

American Air & Water is a corporate member of the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA)

As a member of the International Ultraviolet Association, American Air & Water works for creating UV Standards and Guidelines using a uniform system of UV terms and practices. This is achieved through direct interaction with UV professionals and technicians who work in all aspects and applications of ultraviolet technologies.

International Ultraviolet Association - IUVAThe International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA) is relatively new, incorporated as a non-profit association in 1999, and dedicated to serving all professional fields with interests in ultraviolet technology. The list of interests includes: UV disinfection for drinking water, wastewater, and water for reuse; the use of UV in the fields of curing of adhesives, polymers, and inks; biotechnology; forensic science; entertainment; sun tanning; UV applications in preservation / storage of foods, and non-destructive testing etc. Since its founding in 1999, worldwide interest in IUVA is growing rapidly.

The decision by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) to include UV disinfection of surface water in the upcoming US drinking water regulations has surely given IUVA a boost, but it is not the only factor. As of late 2004, IUVA has over 600 members from over 30 countries, who are interested in all facets of UV technologies and applications.

The primary goal of IUVA is to advance the science, engineering, and applications of ultraviolet technologies to enhance the quality of human life and to protect the environment. One of the ways of achieving this goal is through information transfer. is one of many vehicles IUVA uses to deliver this information.
