Cities full of toxic exhaust fumes – we all want them to be a thing of the past. There are a growing number of alternative drive technologies for better air quality – and in some cases they are already a viable option. The fuel cell is one of them.
Today, air pollution is one of the world’s major public health issues. According to recent figures from the World Health Organization (WHO), 9 out of 10 people worldwide routinely breathe polluted air.
For any company today, finding, recruiting and retaining top talents is an absolute priority. After all, it is these highly qualified and motivated young people who will become the technology experts and business leaders of tomorrow.
According to current expert opinion, the future on our roads is highly likely to belong to autonomous, robotic cars. The technologies that would make this possible are already at an advanced stage of development.

Christoph Krambs is Senior Project Manager Application Engineering in the Automotive Division at Freudenberg Filtration Technologies. Through an internship in the apprentice workshop, he got involved in filter measurement technology and ended up writing his diploma thesis on one of Freudenberg Filtration Technologies’ filter laboratory test benches.
Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is one of the nitrogen oxide pollutants produced by combustion processes. The presence of NO2 in urban air is mainly due to traffic. The proportion of NO2 in vehicle exhaust is considerably higher in diesel vehicles because their exhaust after‑treatment systems increase the oxidation of NO, leading to higher NO2 emissions.
micronAir cabin air filters are not only tested in our laboratories around the world using state-of-the-art test bench technology. They have also been subjected to numerous field tests on behalf of our customers worldwide. From the performance data we gain with these field tests, valuable insights are achieved that contribute to our continuous product development and optimal customer service processes.
