Hidden Dangers: Study reveals increased pollution in road tunnels!

Do you live near a road tunnel? Did you know that road tunnels can contain significantly higher levels of air pollution? Various studies have demonstrated this concerning issue, highlighting the urgent need for measures to address the health risks posed by poor air quality in these enclosed spaces.

Research Findings:

Various research and studies conducted by leading environmental organizations and academic institutions have consistently shown that road tunnels are hotspots for the accumulation of air pollution. Vehicle emissions, including nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and particulate matter (PM), concentrate in tunnel environments, exposing commuters to elevated levels of harmful pollutants. Studies have also shown that prolonged exposure to air pollution in traffic tunnels can have severe health consequences, including respiratory diseases, cardiovascular diseases, and even premature death. The alarming findings underscore the urgent need for effective measures to reduce pollution levels and protect public health.

Standards & Regulations: Restrictions for Particulate Matter 

The World Health Organization (WHO) has established stringent guidelines for particulate matter (PM) concentrations in outdoor air to protect human health. According to WHO, the annual average concentration of PM2.5 should not exceed 5 micrograms per cubic meter (μg/m³), while the concentration of PM10 should not exceed 15 μg/m³.

In line with global efforts to combat air pollution, the European Parliament recently adopted new laws aimed at improving air quality standards by 2030. This legislation sets ambitious targets for reducing emissions of pollutants and improving air quality across all European Union member states.

Experience the Difference: Success Stories

StaticAir has successfully implemented air purification solutions in some of the world's most renowned traffic tunnels, including:

Victory Boogie Woogie Tunnel: The Hague Access Road (Netherlands), As a busy main access road, this tunnel features 2 lanes in each direction. Our technology ensures it is the most sustainable tunnel in Europe, with a guaranteed reduction in particulate matter (PM2.5 - PM10) of at least 55%, providing clean air for travellers and residents.

Kiltunnel: Dordrecht-Hoeksche Waard Connection Tunnel (Netherlands), A major traffic artery for cars and cyclists, with 20 of our systems installed. Together, they achieve a remarkable reduction in particulate matter (PM2.5 - PM10) by 57%.
