With green factories around, world’s air would be cleaner.

A Life project

The air quality

On factory floors, air quality is affected by the emissions of the industrial machinery and of the chemical compounds involved in the process – above all Particulate Matter PM¹ˉ¹ºµ and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), dangerous to the human health and the environment.

the Actions

Green Factory

Diverse technologies are currently employed to sanitize the air on factory floors, ultimately eliminating polluting agents and abating bacterial and viral charges. The Green Factory project aims at employing an ‘hybrid’ technological mix (new, with IP potential) of PCO [Photo Catalytic Oxidation] and UVC [Ultra Violet Categories].

Improvement of air quality

on factory floors and recycle of chemically and bacteriologically clean air after sanitation.

Constant monitoring

of system efficiency plus feedback control to maintain correct parameters through IOT system.

Predictive maintenance

to ensure constant performance and improvement of environmental conditions.

Expected environmental impact

  • PM 1,0 - 2,5 - 10: reduction of 99%
    • VOCs: reduction from 30% to 90%
    • Odorous gasses: reduction of 65%
    • Energy consumption: reduction of 30%
