Though not on the lips of all, particulate matter in the form of fine dust represents a problem – and one that Saas-Fee wishes to eliminate by equipping 250 wood furnaces in the community with a filter. And what a great idea, as this would make the “Pearl of the Alps” the first fine-dust-free community throughout the entire European Alps!

At first, fine-dust appears to be a harmless word, although what’s behind it is a dangerous, life-threatening and carcinogenic time bomb. As a holiday resort of matchless nature with healthy mountain air and traffic-free village, Saas-Fee now intends going a further step in favour of this tranquil haven. The 250 wood furnaces in the community are to be equipped with a filter and, subsequently, all fireplaces redeveloped. Such moves should reduce emissions of particulate matter by around 95 percent.
