Opportunity NOx. Smart Adsorption of Nitrogen Oxide
New Pilot System for Smart Adsorption of Nitrogen Oxide From Exhaust Gases and Breathing Air Now With 15 Times Greater Capacity
By: PR&D Public Relations for Research & Education
Pasching (Austria) 13th May 2020.A specially developed filtration system that adsorbs harmful nitrogen oxide from ambient air has successfully come through initial tests, and its capacity will now be enlarged. Produced by Austrian company Krajete GmbH, the system was installed in the German city of Heilbronn, where it filtered 1,500m3of air per hour, but the capacity of the new model will be more than 15 times higher. During the initial phase, the equipment ran for more than a year without the need for maintenance or repairs. This means the technology is ideally suited to permanent deployment in air purification solutions on major traffic routes where vehicle bans could be imposed. The long-term aim is to install the equipment in the exhausts of petrol and diesel vehicles, which will remain part of our lives for decades to come.
