The dead of pollution

Unread Messageby Christophe » 26/05/06, 10:43

The silent disaster of the dead of urban air pollution.

The numbers are scary, here are some selected pieces:

"Air pollution is a disaster for public health even more than for the climate."

"We learn that on an urban population of 15 259 590 inhabitants of 76 agglomerations of France in 2002, 9513 deaths would be attributable to pollution by fine particles. This represents 4,9% of the total mortality of this same population that year! "

"France alone would see 31 700 dead from air pollution per year including 17 600 (56%) attributable to the only road traffic!"

An "interesting" comparison between pollution and road accident is, moreover, made by the author of this article:

"the exhaust fumes of cars, motorcycles and trucks kill 2,4 times more than road accidents !! The real obituary of the road amounts to 17 600 + 7242 = 24 842 deaths per year !!! We would like many that road safety figures include ALL victims ... "

fine particles = diesel engines Hdi (mainly) ........... when I posted this a few months ago, I was burned by some. I tell you this is one of the next 10 - 20 public health scandals to come, and it will not be all that.

And in France we do nothing better than diesel, particulate filters is a scam because they let these fine particles far more dangerous than the particles of an old diesel normal. Better still, we will manufacture hybrid diesel-electric engines.

I read the whole document on particles, very informative: we learn a lot.

Some filters are effective, but FAPs would increase NOx (also very dangerous), which leads to the production of NOx filters (DeNOx). We also learn that gasoline engines with direct injection (which consume less gasoline) ... emit nanoparticles PM10 as diesels! we do not leave ... all this for a question of money.

---------------------

Indeed more and more brands from any country are coming out of diesel vehicles; weird for japanese! perhaps they are content to export their vehicles (to France in particular?); I would be curious to know what percentage of diesel vehicles are driving in Tokyo!

Well, it makes me think: this week I saw 5 Toyota Prius Hybrid, the last of which this morning in the small town of 15000 hab near where I live .... a drop of water in the sea ... but surprising (beginning of awareness: relatives or friends who die of cancer and we catch the fiber "green"). : Mrgreen:

Obviously you did not click on the link ... which talks about the health impact of fine particles in Switzerland.

I did not speak about France as a car manufacturer but as a "publisher" of studies ... obviously do not fache the Design Office and the technological choices of our builders: it's them that we get it, so it's them we're not right?

Regarding the Prius, there was a comparison in turbo: https://www.econologie.com/comparatif-to ... aguna-dci/

When, at the dawn of history, the first man threw himself on the monkey, his stomach full, a club in his hand and the murder in his heart, the monkey knew that the man was mad.
But it took a long time for the man to notice it. 8)

It's weird, since I gave answers to your questions about the "AIRANDSUNCAR" nobody moves.

I voted François Bayrou in the first round because a priori it is the only one who will really put the program of Nicolas Hulot en route.

an effective way to fight against pollution!

Unread Messageby john33 » 29/05/07, 14:42

It is a fully transparent photocatalytic coating based on titanium dioxide in anatase form capable of making all surfaces self-cleaning. The photocatalysis caused by this coating is not only capable of cleaning up the ambient air as well as making the buildings and buildings self-cleaning but in addition, applied inside the same buildings including on the textiles (!), It destroys the bacteria , viruses, microbes, pollens, mites, odors, toxic volatile organic compounds ... In short, a real revolution for the preservation of our health ... And cocorico, it's French!
Reference link: PHOTOCAL http://www.cyberbtp.com/actus&dossiers/ ... ticle=5669

A facade of self-cleaning facades and fighting against pollution? It's possible now!
A Bordeaux-based company, Baticlean, has developed a photocatalytic coating that destroys polluting organic molecules in the air and on the facades of buildings. Innovative product, Photocal allows, according to Jean de Géradon, director of Baticlean, to make the self-cleaning constructions and to reduce the pollution of the air. Miracle product? A revolutionary solution, in any case, for the director. Interview.
published the 28 / 03 / 2007
Cyber ​​BTP: What are the properties of this product 'miracle'?


Jean de Géradon: Applied to the facades and roofs of buildings, and even on the roads, Photocal breaks down the pollutants coming into contact with it and the non-adhering residues are all simply eliminated by rainwater thanks to its super-hydrophilicity: the rain, instead of forming drops on the surface, spreads like a veil of water and slips by gravity, causing all the decomposed residues.

This product is totally transparent and invisible, even on the glass. The film thus formed is super thin (0,2 microns on average!). Stone, concrete, plaster, glazing, plastics, wood and even textiles can be easily and economically made self-cleaning.

But even more extraordinary, this product has the ability to destroy pollutants, toxic gases, bacteria and viruses, present in the air and coming into contact with it!

Would this technique solve our public health problems caused by pollution?

Numerous studies and reports from the scientific world have found the undeniable effectiveness of photocatalytic processes for their self-cleaning, antibacterial and air-polluting properties.

These studies have shown that a photocatalytic coating applied to 70% of the facades of buildings in a city can reduce air pollution by up to 35%. This coating is effective because of the turbulence of the air which constantly brings Nox and other volatile or semi-volatile compounds to the surface of buildings.

Photocatalysis is more effective than any other anti-bacterial agent. Photocal destroys 99% microorganisms, bacteria, viruses, fungi and molds. It eliminates among others: Escherichia coli, responsible for gastro-anteritis, staphylococcus aureus, responsible for nosocomial diseases and lung infections, Legionella pneumophila, responsible for legionellosis, Lysteria, responsible for lysteriosis and Salmonella, responsible for salmonella.

More importantly, the photocatalysis would be able to destroy the anthrax virus, but also that of the bird flu (H5N1), the first global planetary concern of the public health services and the governments, with a rate of effectiveness of 99 %.

This "smart" coating can lead to a revolution, not only in the self-cleaning protection of buildings, but also in the management of air pollution and in the antibacterial and antiviral warfare.

How is this process interesting for builders?

In addition to its ease and speed of installation and its reasonable cost, it significantly lengthens the time between remodeling, maintenance and cleaning operations of buildings, constructions and materials, by making self-cleaning surfaces outdoors and easy to clean. inside simply with water without any detergent additives or maintenance chemicals. Thanks to this, it allows substantial savings.

For example, the cost of refurbishment of buildings in the Ile de France region, calculated on a general refurbishment carried out every 40, is of the order of several hundreds of millions of euros according to the regional plan of quality of air or more precisely about Paris, 19 euros per year for each Parisian.

But it also cleans buildings and buildings by eliminating bacteria, viruses and mites and protects the materials from damage caused by UV rays from the sun.

This process is similar to plant photosynthesis in which chlorophyll captures sunlight to transform water and carbon dioxide into oxygen and glucose. This process systematically destroys mosses, algae and fungi. It is anti-graffiti and prevents the electrostatic adhesion of dust or fogging.

What scientific evidence do you have to convince your customers?

In addition to our own laboratory tests, numerous test and study reports from internationally recognized universities and scientists clearly demonstrate the extraordinary ability of titanium dioxide photocatalysis to self-clean and -bacterial. Just ask a search engine on the Internet by typing 'photocatalysis' to be convinced.

European Environment Commissioner Philippe Busquin said that "intelligent coatings can lead to a revolution not only in the management of air pollution, but also in the way architects and planners tackle the persistent problem. urban smog ".

What is the cost of the product?

It all depends on the porosity of the support to be treated and the number of layers to be applied depending on this porosity. Let's say that we must count between 3 and 4 euros / m².

This cost price is not more expensive than that of a good water repellent facades but with how many other assets and advantages for our urban planning and our health!
