FILTRONtec – Our raison d’être is clean air in road tunnels and underground parking
FILTRONtec is a leading company that develops and installs state-of-the-art air filter systems for the removal of fine dust particles and pollutant gases created in road tunnels and other confined underground parking facilities.
In road tunnels or underground garages, air pollutant concentrations quickly reach alarming levels. Conventional environmental ventilation systems using exhaust air stack technology are not an optimal solution, because they discharge the tunnel exhaust air together with its pollutants unfiltered into the environment. Exhaust air filters, on the other hand, are an ecological and economical alternative. They reduce the pollutant load of ambient air in the long term and thus improve regional air quality.
The fine dust pollution of the air has become a global health problem. Alone in Germany, some 47,000 people die prematurely by the consequences of high concentrations of fine dust in the air. The EU Commission estimates that around 310,000 deaths are occurring all over Europe, and the figures are 3.3 million deaths per year globally, according to a study published in the Nature magazine. In addition other environmental pollutants in the air, such as oxides of nitrogen and ozone, also have considerable health risks.
Our highly efficient air filter technology not only reduces pollutant emissions at the tunnel portals but also effectively reduces visibility constraints due to turbidity and noxious gas concentrations within a long road tunnel, underground garages or similar buildings. Our fine dust filters have been developed for a high separation rate of the very fine particles (PM1, PM2.5, PM10), which are especially harmful to health.
In addition to the high separation of the unhealthy harmful dust particles, we also offer a maintenance-free filter process for the adsorption of nitrogen dioxide. Our specially developed gas filters are able to reduce the concentration of nitrogen dioxide and other harmful gases, such as ozone, by more than 80% from the tunnel air.
