INEOS has announced that it has installed air filters at its London headquarters to address the poor air quality levels in the area. This new technology now means its staff enjoys some of the cleanest air In London.
INEOS has worked with the National Physical Laboratory on air quality monitoring and with AECOM to develop the ground-breaking kit which it has deployed on the roof, in the street and inside the office to maximise its effectiveness.
Data collected by INEOS revealed there were two major issues with London air quality - the level of Nitrous Oxide (N2O) and the level of particulates. Initial readings taken showed extremely high levels of N2O and particulates, regularly peaking over the EU limit of 40 micrograms per cubic metre (µg/m³).
INEOS has installed high level particulate filters to remove particulates and carbon filters to reduce levels of N2O. Since installing the filter systems, the levels of N2O in the air have fallen from 37 µg/m³ with peaks over 100 µg/m³, to 18 µg/m³ with no peaks. Particulates have fallen from 15 µg/m³ with peaks over 40 µg/m³ to 1 µg/m³ with no peaks.
INEOS worked in collaboration with Melanie Williams Consulting and the multinational engineering firm AECOM to design and install the advanced filter systems.
