Air Quality

Air pollution is contamination of the environment by any chemical, physical or biological agent that modifies the natural characteristics of the atmosphere.

Household combustion devices (such as boilers), motor vehicles, industrial facilities and forest fires are all common sources of air pollution. Pollutants of major public health concern include particulate matter, carbon monoxide, ozone, nitrogen dioxide and sulphur dioxide.

Outdoor and indoor air pollution cause respiratory and other diseases, which can be fatal. More than 5.5 million people worldwide are dying prematurely every year as a result of air pollution, according to research compiled as part of the Global Burden of Disease Project.

A variety of air pollutants can have harmful effects on human health and the environment. In most areas of the world, these pollutants are principally the result of:

  • burning fossil fuels for heating homes, commercial buildings and industries
  • power generation
  • motor vehicle traffic

REDUCING CARBON EMISSIONS WITH HYDRO GENIE

Our Hydro Genie Systems can be retrofitted to your existing boiler – reducing carbon and other harmful emissions, along with lowering your running costs. Depending on which type of Hydro Genie system is installed, your carbon emissions can be reduced by as much as 50%.

While heat pumps and other types of fuels for space heating will eventually take over from most fossil-fuelled boilers, the Hydro Genie System will remain future proof. Our system will reduce the amount of any future heating fuel being burned – whatever it may be.
