U-earth, pure air increases productivity

Today more than ever the focus of companies is aimed at sustainability choices, where energy conservation and employee well-being prove to be a strategy for the communication and transmission of essential, effective corporate values.

U-Earth air purification system saves energy due to less need for air changes in offices through the attainment of a high level of indoor air quality.

In addition, a number of pilot studies, promoted and financed by the European Commission on indoor air quality, which involved 5 European countries, including Italy, found that in the air inside offices, concentrations of both PM10 and CO2 are generally higher than in outdoor air, with obvious consequences on workers’ health.

The U-Earth air purifiers are currently the most powerful on the market because they are capable of destroying 99% of indoor contaminants through biological degradation of molecules in the range between 0.003 microns and 10 microns like no other system on the market.

Therefore the introduction in public environments, such as hospitals, schools and offices, of the U-Earth systems fully embraces the statement with which the Ministers of Health and Environment of the WHO Euro countries have committed themselves to developing and promoting policies and intersectoral action to reduce health risks from exposure in indoor environments (Parma 10 - 12 March 2010).
Air pollution is a major cause of damage to human health and the materials exposed both outdoors and inside city buildings.

 

Urban centres are three-dimensional structures capable of trapping dust, fumes and gases inside buildings. The pollutants inside the buildings are made up of 10-40% from external pollution and 20-60% from pollutants from paints, flooring, air conditioning and bacteria and viruses generated by humans.

 

Offices too, in addition to typical indoor air pollution, are immersed in the urban aerosol of all the other structures and the population that uses them.

Office, business centre and operational headquarter pollutants originate from different types of sources:
- external: nitrogen oxides, sulphur oxides, hydrogen sulphide and carbonyl sulphide (COS), ozone, black carbon, VOCs.
- internal: nitrogen oxides from gas stoves, carbon dioxide, viruses and bacteria from people, ozone from copiers and printers, formic acid and formaldehyde from fittings and furniture, cigarette smoke, fumes from wall paints and flooring.

Current HEPA filtration systems of ambient air in offices and public areas, when present, are often not effective and cannot eliminate particles less than 0.3 microns or the bacterial contamination in the air.

Dust mites and some microorganisms such as fungi and spores, are also among the main sources of indoor allergens. In Italy, several epidemiological studies have shown that about 20% of the general population suffers from allergies.
Bronchial asthma, allergic rhinitis and eczema are constantly increasing among adults as well as among children.

Particulate matter is a mixture of solid and liquid particles suspended in the air, which vary in size, chemical composition and origin.
The diameter of the particles ranges from 0.003 microns to 100 microns.
The smaller the particles the more dangerous the dust entering the lungs which produces adverse health effects.

It is also very important that the total microbial (bacterial and fungal) contamination present in the air is closely monitored.
Nowadays, unfortunately, the possibility of an epidemiological emergency in corporate structures is a serious reality which must be taken into account.

 

NAIL AND BEAUTY SALONS

Approved by the Fire Department of Nail and Beauty Salons
The odours associated with solvents for nail varnish and hair products in beauty parlours constitute a fire hazard more than a health hazard. There is a potential risk of fire when the solvents are stored or used improperly. The U-Earth system has been declared fit by a local department of the Fire Department of Florida to be used as a valid alternative to ventilation systems in beauty salons as the installation removes the fumes permanently rather than directing them elsewhere, as well as contributing to saving on the cost of heating and cooling.

OFFICES

Control of asthma and chemical sensitivity in homes and offices.

Productivity at work increases proportionally with increasing air quality.The U-Earth systems are used in residential and office environments to control air contaminants that might trigger asthma and allergies by treating odours due to cooking or the presence of animals and eliminating the odours from cleaning products or office machines and equipment that can intensify chemical sensitivity.

GYMS

Air quality is crucial during fitness training
Indoor air pollution can be especially harmful to health because indoor air can sometimes prove to be even more polluted than outdoor air.

In the specific case of gyms, "temples of wellbeing", people carry out activities in this type of environment that require greater oxygen consumption than that normally required for everyday activities.
It is therefore necessary to be able to offer a satisfying, healthy fitness experience and pay particular attention to the quality of the air that the clients breathe in gyms.

To date, the treatment of indoor air is performed through massive air changes, filtration or ionization systems. None of these solutions deal with the problem efficiently and most importantly their maintenance is very expensive.
Today there is a new technology that allows the capture and destruction of all airborne contaminants without releasing potentially hazardous agents into the environment: U-Earth technology for air purification. Through bio-oxidation, all the contaminants typical of gyms and spas are eliminated by a single system: odours, viruses and bacteria, spa fumes, etc.

The great advantage in using U-Earth systems is that they improve air quality, as is demonstrable with environmental testing, allowing air to flow within the premises; this considerably reduces the need to ventilate air from the outside allowing considerable energy savings.
Two important goals are achieved by adopting U-Earth systems: optimal air quality and increased energy efficiency. 

 

MUSEUMS

Air pollution is a major cause of damage to human health and the materials exposed both outdoors and inside city buildings.

Urban centres are three-dimensional structures that can trap dust, fumes and gases inside buildings. The pollutants inside the buildings are made up of 10-40% from external pollution and 20-60% from pollutants from paints, flooring, air conditioning and bacteria and viruses generated by humans.

 

Museums too, in addition to the typical indoor pollution, are immersed in the urban aerosol of all the other structures and the population that uses them.With regard to the conservation of the cultural heritage present in museums, libraries and archives, pollutants originate from different types of sources:

- external: nitrogen oxides, sulphur oxides, hydrogen sulphide and carbonyl sulphide (COS), ozone;

- internal: nitrogen oxides from gas heaters, carbon dioxide, viruses and bacteria from people, ozone from copiers and printers, acetic acid, formic acid and formaldehyde from fittings and furniture.

 

Current HEPA systems for filtration of ambient air in galleries and archives are often not effective and cannot eliminate the acetic acid vapours inside windows and cabinets.

Often pollutants "missing" from testing on the indoor environment have been removed from the atmosphere because they have reacted with objects on display thus causing damage.

SCHOOLS

Regarding the protection of students’ health in kindergartens, schools and universities, pollutants originate from different types of sources:

 

  • external: nitrogen oxides, sulphur oxides, hydrogen sulphide and carbonyl sulphide (COS), ozone, black carbon, VOCs.

  • internal: nitrogen oxides from gas heaters, carbon dioxide, viruses and bacteria from people, ozone from copiers and printers, formic acid and formaldehyde from fittings and furniture, chalk from blackboards, fumes from wall paints and flooring.


Current HEPA systems for filtering ambient air in the classrooms and communal areas, if at all present, are often not effective and cannot eliminate particles less than 0.3 microns in size or the bacterial contamination in the air.

Dust mites and some microorganisms, such as fungi and spores, are also among the main sources of indoor allergens. In Italy, several epidemiological studies have shown that about 20% of the general population suffers from allergies.

Bronchial asthma, allergic rhinitis and eczema are constantly increasing among children and adolescents.
The HESE-Health Effects of School Environment pilot study, sponsored and funded by the European Commission, which involved 5 European countries, including Italy, with a sample of 21 elementary schools, found that in schools the indoor air concentrations of both PM10 and CO2, are generally higher than in outdoor air, with obvious consequences on the health of children and young people.

The results of the study confirm that the right of children, affirmed by WHO in 2000, to breathe clean air in school has not yet been fully recognized.
Bronchial asthma in 1999 was recognized as a social disease. Along with obesity, it is the most common chronic disease in childhood.

The U-Earth system is currently the most powerful on the market because it is capable of destroying 99% of indoor contaminants through biological degradation of molecules in the range between 0.003 microns and 10 microns like no other system on the market.

Therefore the introduction in public environments, such as hospitals, schools and offices, of the U-Earth systems fully embraces the statement with which the Ministers of Health and Environment of the WHO Euro countries have committed themselves to developing and promoting policies and intersectoral action to reduce health risks from exposure in indoor environments (Parma 10 - 12 March 2010)
