According to the WHO, around 4.2 million people die each year worldwide from outdoor air pollution. The main cause is particulate matter, which can penetrate deep into the lungs and trigger illnesses. Nitrogen dioxide worsens allergies, damages the respiratory tract and can contribute to heart disease.
MANN+HUMMEL has been a filtration expert for 80 years. Our research and development engineers continue to develop new methods to remove contaminants from air and liquids. Three years ago, we started specifically addressing the subject of fine dust in cities. We can also reduce high nitrogen dioxide emissions in places with high traffic volumes. Meanwhile, we clean more than 1.4 million m³/hour outdoors at 15 locations on 3 continents and project air purification in subway stations and other urban hotspots.
With fine dust filters for vehicles, we are getting closer to emission-free driving. Brakes, road, and tire abrasion are the biggest sources of fine dust from vehicles. Whether diesel or electric, MANN+HUMMEL can improve the emissions balance of vehicles and protect the vehicle occupants.
