Keeping in line with its focus on sustainability, leading global filtration expert Mann+Hummel has improved its Mann-Filter air filter – it now has renewed filter medium which is made from recycled synthetic fibres. One square metre of filter medium contains plastic from up to six 1.5-litre PET bottles. Fibres of the renewed medium are certified non-harmful.

"One square metre of filter medium now contains plastic from up to six 1.5-litre PET bottles. This meant we could triple the proportion of recycled fibres and make an important contribution to the conservation of resources," Jens Weine, product range manager Air and Cabin Air Filters at MANN-FILTER, said.

More air filters will now follow in the footsteps of the C 24 005. The green colour of their recycled fibres makes these air filters look different to the others. They meet the replacement intervals prescribed by the vehicle manufacturer even under dusty conditions, and are characterised by their flame-retardant properties. Also, the new MANN-FILTER air filters are supplied in OEM quality.

Thanks to the multilayer Micrograde A-S medium, the separation efficiency of the C 24 005 air filter is up to 99.5 per cent, when tested with ISO-certified test dust. With its high dirt holding capacity throughout the entire service interval, the air filter requires only 30 per cent of the filter medium area of traditional air filters based on cellulose media. The fibres of the renewed medium are certified according to Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex, meaning they are tested for pollutants and declared non-harmful.

Filters from MANN+HUMMEL are in continuous development. As well as meeting technical specifications, one of the most important factors for MANN+HUMMEL is sustainability.
