Protecting public health indoors and outdoors

Protecting public health indoors and outdoors

In an era of escalating air quality threats, Subodh Yadav, Head of IAQ Business at AIRVERCLEAN SALES INDIA PVT LTD, shares proactive measures to safeguard public health indoors and outdoors, promoting well-being and resilience.

The imperative for regulating indoor and outdoor air quality intensifies with escalating threats to human health. Taking proactive measures becomes essential to mitigate risks effectively in both environments, thus safeguarding public health from the detrimental impacts of pollutants and toxins. This approach addresses immediate concerns and establishes a foundation for long-term health preservation. Communities can create healthier and safer living environments for all, promoting well-being and fostering resilience against the evolving challenges posed by environmental factors by prioritising air quality management. These initiatives demonstrate a strong commitment to improving the quality of life and protecting the health of current and future generations with a deep commitment to universal well-being.

People normally breathe in 6 to 10 litres of air per minute while resting and 8,000 to 14,000 litres daily. The typical oxygen consumption ranges from 250 to 350 millilitres per minute or 11 to 17 cubic metres per day. These numbers highlight the importance of managing air quality since it significantly influences human health. Given the frequent interchange of large quantities of air in our surroundings, maintaining clean indoor and outdoor settings ensures the well-being of our respiratory health. Maintaining good air quality promotes a healthier living environment and improves overall health.

A single plant produces around 0.12 litres of oxygen each day if it is the only source of oxygen. To support one human, around 91,667 plants would be required. Humans in urban areas are constantly exposed to dirty atmospheric air saturated with gases and particle matter. Meanwhile, interior spaces include microbiological and particle contaminants, exacerbating air quality problems. Addressing these concerns needs programmes that include both outdoor and interior air quality control. Drastic steps are required to reduce the health hazards connected with airborne pollutants and guarantee respiratory well-being in densely populated and urbanised areas.

UVC lamps are positioned in front or behind the cooling coil of each Air Handling Unit (AHU) to maximise irradiance on the coil surface. These lamps are mounted on aluminium frames and powered remotely from a control box containing ballasts and sensor boards. The control box outside the AHU is not exposed to the airflow. It’s a customised solution that adjusts the number of lamps according to the AHU size.

Addressing the challenges demands a multifaceted strategy encompassing efficient ventilation systems, advanced air purification technology, and sustained ecological initiatives. These approaches reduce pollution levels in indoor and outdoor spaces, thereby shielding human health from the detrimental effects of airborne pollutants. These measures ensure immediate protection and foster long-term environmental sustainability. The holistic approach creates healthier and more resilient communities, lays the groundwork for the well-being of present and future generations, and exemplifies our commitment to preserving the health of both people and the planet.
