Applied to domestic refrigeration, Bioconservacion’s technology increases the shelf-life of fruit and vegetables, providing benefits to equipment manufacturers and consumers. As they mature, fruit and vegetables naturally produce ethylene. Ethylene accelerates maturation which is why systems that eliminate ethylene, VOCs and fungus spores from the environment are especially beneficial, as they lengthen the useful life of fruit and vegetables increasing shelf life by up to 25%.
Within the industrial sector there are specific installations which should pay maximum attention to the protection of their control rooms against corrosion. This is because their activities generate highly corrosive gasses which need to be eliminated in case they affect the functioning of critical electrical equipment. This corrosion compromises the efficiency and safety and can affect the production process itself.
Environments with an excess of suspended particles and/or contaminating gasses in the air may be unhealthy and might even cause harmful effects, increasing the risk of developing illnesses. To address these risks, vast numbers of public installations and buildings must provide air filtration solutions to ensure a high quality of air inside the building to safeguard the health and comfort of the occupants.
There are ever more uses of water in human activities that require its subsequent purification. Of this, treating this water in waste water treatment plants (WWTP) before releasing it into the ecosystem is in rising demand. Additionally, there is also an increasing need to treat solid waste in rubbish tips to minimise environment impact in this process.
The location of the files in an appropriate environment is a necessary condition to preserve them properly. There are numerous studies that identify environmental pollution as the main problem for the conservation of historical objects. Acid gases, such as sulfur, nitrogen and carbon oxides, are the most widespread form of pollution, and they acidify archival materials, accelerating deterioration. The powder has hygroscopic properties, which results in an increase in the humidity of the material, causing the...
