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.
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.
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
- VOCs: reduction from 30% to 90%
- Odorous gasses: reduction of 65%
- Energy consumption: reduction of 30%
