Delta M’s entire range of air filters are recyclable and reusable, meaning they prevent solid waste generation while delivering improvements to indoor air quality.

Delta M’s air filters are made of recyclable materials and are delivered to customers using a circular ‘product as service’ business model. Once filters are used, they are collected by Delta M for cleaning and replaced with fresh filters. The filters, which have a lifespan of around 12 times that of regular cardboard filters, can be reused several times without compromising on quality and performance. The company estimates that cleaning their durable filters generates less CO2 than the manufacture of a new cardboard filter. In addition, recycling a filter 8-10 times consumes less water than an average load of laundry.

Delta M takes our filters back and regenerates them to pristine condition. And we pay for shipping and a rebate on each returned filter. No waste to landfill.

Ted Magee – CEO, Delta M.

Delta M filters deliver strong health benefits for building occupants too. Because Delta M filters are denser than conventional single-use filters, they have more surface area for capturing air pollutants such as mould, metals and hydrocarbons.

Why you should care

Air filtration is essential for air-conditioning systems to function properly, providing thermal comfort and ensuring high indoor air quality. Typically, these filters are thrown away after just one use. Air filters must be replaced every few months, creating large amounts of waste sent to landfills that take several decades to decompose. With its cradle-to-cradle approach, Delta M reduces waste generation by delivering highly durable, reusable and recyclable air filters.

How the Global Goals are addressed

Good health and well-being

The materials resist growth and spread of mould, helping to create healthier indoor environments and avoid aggravating respiratory illnesses.

Responsible consumption and production

Delta M's 'product as service' model prevents an estimated 8,750,000 cubic feet of waste to landfill each year, and promotes a more circular economy.
