Air pollution is a serious environmental and public health problem that can be associated with cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, as reported by recent studies. Filter media is commonly used to control and removal particles from the air. Recently, the use of nanofibers applied to air filtration is increasing.

In this context, the aim of this study was evaluate the filtration performance of filters with nanofibers and HEPA. The results showed that collection efficiency and pressured drop of HEPA filter were...
