In the UK, has launched the bus, cleaning the air


Urban public transport (if, of course, is not electric) emits a lot of harmful substances into the environment. But even if we make transport environmentally friendly — it will not deliver us from what has already polluted air is not going anywhere. It is this problem decided to solve the company's representatives the Go-Ahead that started on the streets of cities in the UK the bus, which course will clear the air.

To Participate in the experiment, the lucky residents of the southern British town of Southampton. According to the world Health Organization (who) it is one of the most polluted cities in the UK because of the huge number of vehicles running on diesel fuel, so the choice is justified.

Experts Pall Aerospace has developed a special filter for installation on the roof of the bus line of Bluestar. The filter looks like a big car spoiler. It begins its work when the bus is in motion. Harmful particles settle on the filter, and the output is clean air.

It May seem that the volume of treated air minor, but it is not so. According to the developers, in the course of movement of the bus in case of regular travel route clearance at a height of 10 metres above the road surface. The presence of a large filter on top of the bus does not interfere with the movement of the vehicle and its passengers. Also, according to the experts, if you install these filters on the entire bus fleet of Southampton — the air in the city is completely purified several times a year. According to the head of the Go-Ahead David brown

"with our project we want to show that the bus — is not only the vehicle. They can be used to solve environmental problems. In particular, for air purification in the urban space."
