The quality of the air we breathe during daily travel plays a huge role in our short- and long-term wellbeing and quality of life. The air in the cabin space shared by commuters can lead to airborne disease transmission and pollution exposure.
Numerous studies indicate the increasing concentration of fine particulate matter, black carbon particles, and other gaseous pollutants in the cabin air as a bus travels along its commute. Carbon dioxide accumulates in cabins on crowded and idling buses due to limited ventilation. Various other traffic-related pollutants (TRP)’s also accumulates inside bus cabins through intake of the polluted air amid traffic. Additionally, viruses and bacteria are exhaled, sneezed, and coughed into the air constantly by the bus passengers and drivers.
TRAINS & SUBWAY
Aircraft cabins are notorious for the spread of cold or flu viruses. The SteriSpace™ technology can be designed to integrate into the air handling systems of aircraft. The improved air quality on-board will have a positive impact on the health of both passengers and crew, while also helping to mitigate the risk of spreading infections during long flights.
SHIPS & NAVAL TRANSPORT
The SteriSpace™ technology can be scaled and configured to provide clean air for large naval vessels and other maritime transport vehicles. Hospital ships can take advantage of the isolation and prevention capabilities by manipulating the airflow for quarantine units as well as operating rooms. The SteriSpace™ technology also offers a highly effective method for potentially mitigating airborne viral outbreaks on cruise ships.
Vehicles such as commercial trucks which have sleeping quarters on-board, can experience a build-up of exhaust and other airborne environmental pollutants inside the cabin. These contaminants tend to accumulate and recirculate inside the smaller cabin. Recirculating the internal air with our technology will substantially improve air quality, reducing the number VOCs and organic particles present in the cabin.
