Double skin façades may help combine a high degree of transparency with high thermal and solar performance. Advanced façades serve as filters and may be responsive to changes in environmental conditions and occupant requirements.
Kragh M., Colombari M., Zobec M.
Nowadays the awareness concerning the environmental pollution and the demand of transparent facades in architecture, lead research in finding new solutions to increase the energy performances of the building and the installations as well.

The mitigation to reduce indoor pollutant concentration are increasing ventilation rate or to reduce the emission of the pollutant which is also common in VOCs.
A field survey on thermal comfort in Algeria has never been previously attempted, and for this reason the present study was conducted. The present paper will present a field study of thermal comfort in Algeria.

The needle heat exchanger (acts as a pre filter EU3) was installed in front of the glass fiber used as a fine filter (EU7) in the supply air chamber.
Halonen R., Kokotti H., Kujanpää L, Keskikuru T., Reiman M.
More than three quarters of all consumed energy in buildings are used for heating, ventilation and sanitary hot water preparation.
Medved S.,l Arkar C., Domjan S., Cerne B.
The fine filter (EU7) was included in the ventilation system which operated at full capacity only during working days.
