According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 9 out of 10 people worldwide breathe polluted air. WHO estimates that around 7 million people die every year from exposure to fine particles in polluted air. Air pollution can lead to diseases such as stroke, heart disease, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases and respiratory infections including pneumonia.
CLEAN AIR PARK is a unique project for large scale depollution of the air in urban areas and cities. In analogy to windmill parks and solar parks for large scale production of green energy, Clean Air Park will produce large scale clean air.
In the future filter parks the polluted air will transit a 4-step filter system which eliminates:
The individual filter components are proven technologies, which are already implemented in other industrial applications i.e. food industry and waste water treatment.
The filter park will have a modular architecture. Thus the performance can be customized to clean from 10,000s up to millions of m3 air per day.
Because of the compact size of the components, a 3 million m3/day filter park will have a footprint of under 1,000m2. A park of this size will provide clean air for as many as 250,000 people every day.
In industrialized areas, the combined emissions of industrial activity, heating, traffic (air, sea, land), thermic energy production etc. create dangerous smog. It not only affects people’s health but it is also responsible for climate issues as well as important damages on buildings and infrastructure.
The CLEAN AIR PARK project aims to improve the air quality and to prevent people from breathing polluted air. By cleaning the air on a large scale with our proposed filter park, countries, cities and communities can improve the life conditions of their citizens. And at the same time save lives as well as costs on health care.
The CLEAN AIR PARK project proposes an innovative and sustainable solution for a global problem: WHO estimates that 9 out of 10 people worldwide breathe polluted air and around 7 million people die every year from exposure to fine particles in polluted air.
This project unites the interests of international and national health organizations, climate initiatives, governments, administrations, industries and citizens. Next a 4-step filter unit prototype needs to be developed.. This is to prove the technical feasibility, adapt and improve the individual filter components and optimize their synchronisation/control.
To build a filter park, several filter units are put together, which increases the filtering capacity. The units are operated and monitored from a central control.
