The challenges and solutions
Annually, 18.000 Dutch citizens die at an early age because of air pollution. Fine dust is one of the main causes of this air pollution, Fine dust are the particles of dust smaller than 10 microns. According to the World Health Organization(WHO), the fine dust problem will continue to growth in the comings years and will become a greater problem the pollution of water.
The founders of ENS collaborated with the scientist of the Technical University of Delft to develop a new and environmental friendly technique to reduce the exposure against fine dust. Having a background in infection prevention, the founders of ENS were already aware of the risks of exposure to fine dust particles in hospitals and operating theaters. Fine dust is not a risk for cardio vascular diseases but is also an known aerosol spreader of bacteria and viruses.
ENS is the developer of innovative air cleaning solutions. Together with the Technical University of Delft, ENS produces systems to reduce air pollution in various markets and industries. .
The founders of ENS applied their years of experience in the infection prevention and air treatment in the medical industry. Sister company IMG Europe (www.imgeurope.nl) developed a broad range of air cleaning and isolation systems for hospital use.
The mission of ENS is to improve the environment for humans and animals. We contribute by developing sustainable and green solution for a cleaning (work) environment. ENS is a reliable partner who works closely together with clients, governments and other stakeholders to achieve excellent results.
The positive ionization technique can be used in a variety of industries and markets. Among others, the technique is used in Agricultural.
- Waste management
- Energy production
Is the air we breathe really clean?
Air contains a lot of different small particles. The particles smaller than 10 micron are called fine dust. These parts can be organic material such as salt particles near oceans. These particles can also be inorganic, for example exhaust from cars and trucks. These particles are a known transportation vehicle for bacteria, viruses and endotoxins. How can we solve this exposure to harmful fine dust?
ENS developed a special electrode that is mounted on a system which also has a counter electrode. By charging this system with a positive current, the electrode will send positive ions into the air. These positive ions will stick to the fine dust particles, and send these to a dedicated negative charges surface, the counter electrode. The harmful fine dust is collected on the dedicated place and taken out of the air. The fine dust particles became dust particles due to the Van der Waals binding. This way the fine dust is made harmless.
Advantages of positive ionization :
- Effective against all fine dust
- Low energy consumption
- Suitable for a broad range of applications
- Ability to clean large quantities of air
- Ability to clean air at high speeds
- Low maintenance
- Low cost of ownership
- Low air resistance
In 2007 it was discovered many people were infected with MRSA. Through the analysis on how to avoid future infections, the question arose on how to prevent further spreading of the bacteria. The final answer was fresh air. Lia of Vorle “The MRSA bacteria spreads, among others, through airborne dust. Germs cling to it. By removing dust particles from the air, you will also remove the germs. This creates a better environment for people and livestock.“
Lia van de Vorle contacted Bob Ursem and his scientific team from Delft University of Technology. A particle collector was developed at their laboratory, which created nano-particles from air molecules and used them to convert fine dust into coarse dust. Once particle matter is transformed into coarse dust, any inhalation risk is removed. ENS took this innovative technology and developed it further, making it viable for large scale applications. ENS’s R&D resulted in several patents and products with which particles can be captured. These products have many applications in various sectors.
ENS’s mission is to improve the life quality for human population and livestock in a sustainable manner.
R&D at ENS is of paramount importance. We specialize in underwriting license agreements for systems using our patented positive ionization technology. For example, certain street sweeper truck models from RAVO are equipped with a fine particle filter developed by ENS.
