Intelligent system offering air purification on demand
We breathe air to live – and what we breathe directly affects our health.
Air pollution is one of the greatest challenges faced by mankind today. It is attributable to around one in eight of all global deaths per annum, equivalent to nearly 7 million premature deaths. And it is estimated that 92% of the world’s population lives in places where air pollution levels exceed the limits recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Health risks from indoor air pollution are likely to be greatest in cities, especially where risks associated with solid fuel combustion coincide with risks associated with modern buildings. Everyday exposure to multiple chemicals, most of which are present indoors, may contribute to increasing prevalence of asthma, autism, cancer and other illnesses.
Indoor pollution is released from a variety of sources such as vinyl tile, cooking, tobacco smoke and perfumes. When this pollution is mixed with the pollution that is pumped into the building from the polluted ambient outside city air via the HVAC system, a lethal cocktail of toxic gasses and particles is formed.
By mirroring the atmosphere’s self-cleaning mechanisms, DOMISPHERE aims to turn buildings in polluted cities into closed atmospheric environments protected from the pollution outside whilst cleaning the pollution that occurs on the inside.
The DOMISPHERE targets the home appliances market with a new and ground-breaking technology that ensures superior indoor air cleaning, initially aimed at private homes and residential housing – and which can be used in offices, shops, other commercial spaces, and public buildings too. Moreover, DOMISPHERE works towards a seamless integration of its technology into air conditioning and/or HVAC-systems to offer a broader field of indoor air cleaning application.
