Particulate matter and acid droplets like SO3 can enter in the lungs and can greatly impact health.
Using the SOLVAir® bicarbonate solution, acid droplets are easily removed and the filtration step with the bag filter reduces the particulate emission at levels near to zero.
Particulate Matter (PM) refers to fine particles and aerosols to liquid droplets small enough to become airborne. This includes fly ash and droplets of SO3 created by industrial combustion processes.
The European Commission regulates the inhalable fraction of PM pollution (Directive 2008/50/EC) because of its ability to enter in the lungs and its potential to greatly impact health.
