BION, as an expert in gas filtration, focuses its knowledge and commercial offer on the removal or treatment of the most common gases present in environmental pollution
We live in a world where pollution constantly surrounds us. There are a multitude of polluting gases both indoors and outdoors that affect us in an invisible way.
Pollution from outside can cause serious respiratory diseases such as pneumonia, cough, lung cancer, asthma, etc. and cardiovascular diseases among others.
What is not so commonly known is that inside homes and buildings can also be 5 to 10 times more polluted than outside, according to the WHO.
Currently, people living in urban populations in industrialised countries spend up to 90% of their time indoors.
These data reveal the need for good indoor air quality to avoid the discomforts generated and stimulated by poor air quality. Some of the most common consequences are headaches, dizziness, nausea, persistent colds, irritation of the respiratory tract, etc.
On the other hand, living in buildings with good indoor environmental quality can bring great benefits:
- Increased environmental comfort
- Increased productivity
- Reducing short-term sick leave
- Reducing viruses and bacteria in the environment
- Reducing the risk of respiratory illnesses
- Decrease the risk of allergic sensitisation.
Fortunately, technology can actively treat bacteria, pollution and many of the pollutant gases present.
BION, as an expert in gas filtration, focuses its know-how and commercial offer on the removal or treatment of the most common gases present in environmental pollution.
Its solutions can be applied as a complement to particulate filtration technologies, from an individual level in non-professional refrigeration systems to large installations in residential buildings, shopping centres and civil buildings.
What solutions are available for indoor air quality control?
The main strategies are filtration and the use of ventilation to dilute pollutants.
For particles and microbes, different types of particulate filters are used.
For gases, dry filtration with BION's wide range of chemical media ensures high efficiency at very low concentrations. The filtration units are compact and easy to use.
