Aquaten has developed a range of products to help reduce the impact of air pollution on vulnerable people.

Our latest product – Aquaten Clean Green planters – is a significant tool in the fight against urban pollution.

Our aim is to provide and achieve:

– Clean air zones around areas where vulnerable people congregate;

– Improve health, well-being and quality of life for all who may be affected by poor air quality.

Aquaten Clean Green planters (ACG) take an holistic approach to tackle the multiple aspects of harmful airborne pollution. They have been developed with air-cleansing and aesthetics as their core benefits.

Each ACG captures noxious gases and particulate matter thereby cleaning 340 cubic meters of air, creating a mini clean air zone where they are positioned, offering the potential for 10 ACG’s to clean 3,400 cubic meters of air for every recharge.

ACG planters work by using activated carbon, Aquaten absorbent fibre and green screens in a unique way which attracts and neutralises pollutants from the air; particularly ozone, benzene and particulate matter, all of which reduces lung function and increase the incidence of respiratory symptoms, respiratory hospital admissions and mortality

Through the process of preferential adsorption ACG panels will neutralise pollutants such as benzene, chlorobenzene, ethylbenzene, diesel and automotive fumes, naphtha and naphthalene, nitrobenzene, ozone, phenol, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), smog, tar and toluene from the air. We calculate that each unit will provide enough capacity to clean 340 cubic metres of air. This will capture 80 billion PMs per week and the dangerous ozone and benzene in that zone.

The product recharges naturally, given normal conditions. We also provide a maintenance programme to ensure that ACG operates at maximum capacity during its life.

The addition of Aquaten absorbent fibre into the product in order to capture toxic rain and prevent toxic run off into drains and gutters is another unique element of this product.
