Thermo King Solution helps Americans return to work with safer and healthier public commutes.

To help improve public transit safety and support economic recovery, Thermo King, a strategic brand of global climate innovator Trane Technologies, has launched a new air purification solution for buses that continuously purifies the air while the bus is in operation. Thermo King’s Air Purification Solution has been independently tested and proven to be 98 percent effective in deactivating certain viruses, including a surrogate for the virus that causes COVID-19.

“Our public transit customers understand that riders may feel apprehensive about getting back into their normal routines and taking public transportation,” said Karin De Bondt, president of Thermo King Americas. “Customers and consumers face a wide range of claims in the market regarding air purification. We offer a proven solution, tested and validated by third party experts, that provides safer, healthier air quality for drivers and passengers while in transit.” she added.

In 2019, Americans took 9.9 billion trips on public transportation, with 87 percent of these trips having a direct economic impact on local economies. According to the American Public Transportation Association, at the height of the pandemic in 2020, some cities experienced a nearly 90 percent decline in bus ridership.

Trane Technologies has been at the forefront of helping to create safer, healthier, and more efficient environments for homes, buildings and transportation around the world. In 2020, the company introduced the Center for Healthy and Efficient Spaces (CHES) and convened an external advisory council to support these efforts.

The pre-filter collects particulate matter while the GPCO device produces oxidants that deactivate various pathogens as the air passes through. Graphene’s properties enhance the performance and safety of the solution beyond what was possible with previous-generation photo catalytic oxidation products. The solution allows operation while passengers are present and does not emit harmful by-products such as ozone and removes harmful VOCs such as formaldehyde.
