In the autumn of 2016, we launched the project “Lungs of the City”: Air purification in car parks to improve the air quality in the adjacent streets. Various Dutch media have written about this extraordinary project. Last week, ‘Lungs of the City’ received international attention.
Together with the Technical University of Eindhoven and KU Leuven (Research Group Urban Physics and Wind Engineering) we examined the potential improvement in air quality when car parks are equipped with our fine dust elimination systems. In October, the results of this study were published in the scientific Journal of Wind Engineering & Industrial Aerodynamics (Elsevier).
In response to this study, Reuters published a video item on the ‘Lungs of the City’ project. Curious about the item? You can view it here.
Last week, Elsevier Connect published the article ‘How electrifying the air in parking garages could clean our cities’. It summarizes the results of the study and describes how our technology can contribute to solving the global air pollution problem. We are very proud that the potential of ‘Lungs of the City’ is recognized in the international scientific community.
