New Pollution Solution technology can capture and remove up to 97% of exhaust emissions at traffic light junctions, drive-thru restaurants, schools, and other pollution hotspots.
The technology uses low energy fans to ‘suck in’ the exhaust fumes that are produced by slow-moving or idling vehicles.
The system has been designed to be located within the roadway and positioned as close as possible to the vehicle’s exhaust pipe to ensure that the highest pollutant capture rate is possible.
With each fan able to draw in 15,000m3/hr of polluted air per meter of the roadway, engineering simulation specialists Wilde Analysis have calculated that depending on the exact location of the exhaust pipes and the weather conditions, the technology could remove up to 97% of all vehicle emissions.
Thomas Delgado, founder and CEO of Pollution Solution, said: ‘Our offering has always been to install the product at pollution hotspots on roads and at drive-thru restaurants, where exhaust fumes from idling cars would be recycled into clean air on the spot.
‘Coronavirus has, over the last four months, made the need for this technology even greater. Because of our productâ€™s potential to improve air quality instantly, the public will benefit from cleaner air and improved respiratory health which helps combat the effects of the virus.
‘Those who live in highly polluted areas are significantly more at risk of an early death.
‘Our technology has recently undergone an independent CFD study, completed by a team of highly respected scientists, which proves the technology has the means to cut human exposure to car exhaust pollution by as much as 97%, this means that where this solution can be implemented immediately, there would be a marked reduction in risk of illness and death.’
