Why clean-up the Air?

Air pollution affects us all. Scientists are worried about the impact of air pollution on our health and wellbeing.
Since the arrival of COVID-19, many things have been said about harmful, invisible particles (aerosols) in the environment all around us. Aerosols smaller than PM10 are capable of finding their way deep into our bodies.

The inhalation of this fine particulate matter stemming from metals, micro plastics, fungi, bacteria, soot etc. has consequences for our respiratory system, our cardiovascular and endocrine system, even our neurological health is at risk. Virusses are known to attach to larger aerosols, which makes it even  more important to clean the air of unwanted air pollution. 

People exposed to heavy emissions and working in industrial environments are at risk, just like people walking outside on the streets. Enhancing the in- and outdoor environment, means healthier living and working conditions for people everywhere.  Our systems are developed to make the difference, especially in opposing fine particulate matter smaller than PM10 (PM2.5, PM0.1).

WHAT IS PARTICULATE MATTER?

Fine particulate matter is a microscopic small form of (ultra-) fine dust which makes up air pollution. These extremely small particles are invisible to the human eye. Scientists are worried about the severe consequences of air pollution threatening our health and wellbeing. These tiny particles are classified into different varieties and a distinction is made between the size of the particles. The unit is PM, which stands for Particulate Matter: 

  • PM10 Particles with a diameter smaller than 10 micrometer
  • PM2,5 Particles with a diameter smaller than 2.5 micrometer
  • PM0,1 Particles smaller than 0.1 micrometer (ultra-fine dust)


StaticAir’s innovative systems are able to reduce all types and sizes of fine particulate matter without the use of a filter and mechanic ventilation.
