Evergen India, one of the leading energy and environment companies on Thursday said that it has installed the world's first street-level clean air zone at Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib in New Delhi.
"Evergen India and Airlabs have installed the world's first street-level 'clean air zone' called AirHavn to demonstrate this technology and how it can be deployed to clean air pollution," the company said in a statement.
Evergen and Airlabs have made the investment and their scientists, technical engineers, and other managers have been in India for two weeks for the planning and implementation of the pilot project, it added.
The Airlabs patented technology was developed by Mathew Johnson, professor of Atmospheric Chemistry at the University of Copenhagen.
"The technology utilises a combination of atmospheric chemistry and airflow engineering and is implemented through a proprietary dual filter system combining nano-particles for removing 97 to 99 per cent fine dust particles and a chemical media to remove gases like NOx, SOx, CO2, and Ozone," the statement said.
