People spend almost 90% of their time indoors. Therefore, indoor air quality is a critical issue for our wellbeing. Unfortunately, mould and toxic volatile organic compounds (VOC) affect on indoor air quality in many places e.g. homes, schools, daycare centers, hospitals and offices.
According to studies children exposed to sick building syndrome has 8-40 times higher risk of getting asthma.
Number of people of suffering from asthma has more than doubled in 30 years.
In UK, the air quality today is worse than in 1950’s when coal was widely used for heating and we were covered in black dust. Today we don’t see the pollution that much but there are more harmful particles in the air and they are more dangerous.
In UK poor air quality causes 35,000 premature deaths a year (King’s College research).
Airborne microbe contamination is a substantial risk at hospitals and wards. Children, elderly people and immuno-compromised patients are exposed to hospital bacteria causing more deaths than AIDS. In UK MRSA costs are more than £1bn/year.
Latest studies reveal that airborne contamination may play a substantial role in spreading microbes; washing and disinfecting our hands regularly is necessary but not enough.
Genano is a Finnish manufacturer of air purification units. Using patented Genano® technology, Genano isolates even smallest nano-sized particles and harmful gases from the air. Genano air purifying systems are used in hospitals (e.g. MRSA, C-diff), laboratories and places where indoor quality may cause a health risk e.g. schools with sick building syndrome.
By purifying the smallest particles and gases from the air it is possible to protect people as well as improve manufacturing processes. A wide range of applications in 20 countries is benefiting of Genano air purifiers from welding shops to classrooms and hospital isolation wards.
