Unfortunately it’s also been so much harmful to the environment what heavy industrialisation around the world has caused. The most grave issue is the quality of air that we breathe in.
According to Preserve Energy Future (CFF), deaths due to air pollution cost the European Union are 161 billion, and over 90 percent of individuals living in EU are exposed to the particles at amounts greater than advocated by the World Health Organization. Air pollution is cause for 65% of the deaths in Asia and 25% deaths in India. Ultra-fine particles are more dangerous which aeroplane and vehicle emissions release, or during waste disposal. These particles damage the nervous system and cause many diseases.
In accordance with Dutch startup Envinity Group, the pollution increasing from the burning of wood or fuel is the “largest risk to public health.” To handle this issue, Envinity Group has come up with an inventive solution, which they call to be the world’s first enormous outside atmosphere vacuum sucking up to these hazardous particles from the atmosphere.
The layout was revealed at the Offshore Energy 2016 Exhibition & Convention in Amsterdam. Henk Boersen, the company spokesman said that this is a substantial industrial filter, made of steel, and that when situated on top of buildings it could work like a huge vacuum cleaner, that also allows a big column of air come out clear after going a filtration process.
The firm maintains that their apparatus is effective at filtering out 100 percent of fine particles and 95 percent of ultra-fine particles. The apparatus is unique from other industrial pollution catchers as it can cover an area of over 300 meters radius or almost 1,000 feet. The apparatus can take in feet cubic meters or 28,251,733 cubic 800,000 of air in only one hour !
Based on the firm, this filtering system is the “first of its type in the world”, which has seen great interest from airports, companies, and authorities and will enable the folks to fend off the “silent killers”.
