The Israeli system protects tourist buses, which have been converted in recent months to transport vital workers in a way that eliminates the need for public transportation.
Israeli startup Aura Air has completed a project to protect 400 buses in the United Kingdom and Ireland from the coronavirus (COVID-19) by using unique technology for air purification in enclosed spaces.
The system has been installed on tourist buses, which have been converted in recent months to transport vital workers to their workplaces safely so as not to endanger them by traveling on public transport.
The system monitors the air in the bus space including temperature, humidity, amounts of carbon dioxide, organic gases and more, and compares the data to the outside air.
In any case of a deviation, including the danger of fire or gas intrusion into the bus, the driver receives an immediate alert. The purification unit performs a full replacement of all the air on the bus five times an hour.
A study conducted at Sheba Hospital determined that the system has the ability to destroy various bacteria and viruses, including the Coronavirus, at a rate of 99.9%.
Aura Air has developed technology to detect air pollution and to purify the air, including the destruction of COVID-19, based on sensors, special algorithms and air purification technology.
The company manufactures the system in Israel and its products are sold to corporate customers such as schools, train stations, offices and large entities in Israel, Europe, the U.S. and the Far East.
The Zarzuela Palace, the residence and working offices of the reigning monarch of Spain, recently installed the technology.
