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.
Research on suitable materials and technologies conducted in 2022 led the team to create a pilot plant green factory. The entire air purification system fitted with detectors was installed at Ma-El Srl in Presezzo, near Bergamo.
Help us be more and more Green!
Take the survery
LIFE19 ENV/IT/000185 GREEN FACTORY - PMs concentration reduction in metal factories through the use of an energy-saving electronic detective system - is a project co-financed by the LIFE Program of the European Union.
Fill out the questionnaire
The project, led and coordinated by the Italian company LOSMA, has developed a new air purification system, the Green Factory, already operational as pilot plant at a client premise.
This survey will take only 10 minutes and is focused on the collection of your opinions and impressions about the GREEN FACTORY system.
Improvement of air quality
on factory floors and recycle of chemically and bacteriologically clean air after sanitation.
of system efficiency plus feedback control to maintain correct parameters through IOT system.
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%
