Bus collecting and treating particulate matter

Providing Ancona's trolleybuses of a particulate matters filter that clear the air during its trip, also allowing to analyse and monitor the collected pollutants.

Solution context

Ancona is affected by high levels of air pollution due to vehicular emissions. 

Solution description

We propose the installation of an electrostatic precipitator filter on the roof of Ancona's trolleybuses for the removal of partucilate matter. This filter is able to clean the air that passes through it during the bus's route, collecting particles with dimensions as small as 1µm. Moreover this device allows to monitor the quality of the air and see if there are improvements in time. To apply a screen that shows the results of the amount of particles removed can sensibilize the population to this problem and incourage them to use it as a means of transport.
