Scientists have developed a new filter which may reduce in-car pollution by as much as 93 per cent when the car’s vents are open, to effectively improve the health and welfare of car occupants. While vents inside cars can be closed, by switching the car’s ventilation system to ‘recirculation mode’ - effectively slashing the amount of ultrafine particulate (UFPs) emissions inside the car by as much as 90 per cent - closing the vents causes exhaled carbon dioxide to build up. Rising carbon dioxide levels in turn represents a hazard to health as it can impair decision-making by drivers and impact on road safety. Current manufacturer-fitted filters only block between 40-60 per cent of the UFPs, which enter the car when the vents are open. According to ACS journal Environmental Science & Technology, however, scientists Yifang Zhu and Eon Lee have developed a new HECA filters wh...
