NOx (NO and NO2) Filter Systems for Effective Indoor Air Pollution Control

Air pollution arising from NOx - Nitric Oxides (NO) and Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) - in our densely populated cities is the focus of considerable media attention. With an increasing number of UK Local Authorities declaring Air Quality Management Areas (AQMAs), the quality of the air should be of concern to us all.

NOx (NO and NO2) Filter Systems for Effective Indoor Air Pollution Control

The Legislation

The EU Directive 2008/50/EC (the CAFE Directive) European Union Air Quality and Clean Air for Europe 2008 set stringent levels for Nitric Oxides (NO) and Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) in designated Air Quality Management Areas (AQMAs).

This legislation has significant implications for Planners, Developers and Mechanical Consultants who are working on new build schemes in the residential, educational and commercial sectors. In order to comply with this legislation, developers must implement acceptable mitigation measures where the external air quality (NO2) being entrained into the building exceeds an annual mean of 40ug/m³.
