AIR POLLUTION IS A MAJOR THREAT TO GLOBAL HEALTH
- People die every day from breathing polluted air. Statistics indicate 4567 people die every day in India due exposure to pollution. Yet we keep breathing such polluted air.
- The year 2020 shattered all previous air pollution records despite drop in fossil fuel consumption and emission on account of the COVID 19, Pandemic.
- India ranks in top 3 Carbon-dioxide emitters worldwide second only to China & USA.
- World Health Organization stated in its latest report that 99% of the air that we breathe exceeds the threshold of WHO Guideline limits.
- Air Pollution is the WORLD’s LARGEST ENVIRONMENT risk, responsible for more than 9 million premature deaths.
Air Pollution & Public Health
Almost 90% of the population living in urban areas is affected by air pollution. Air pollution, industrialization, and urbanization are closely linked together.
Earlier air pollution was found guilty of simply causing respiratory disease. Advanced research data associate Air Pollution with several cardio-pulmonary diseases along with Lung Cancer, Breast Cancer, and Diabetes.
In 2013 WHO declares Air pollution as potential carcinogen for the Humans.
Air Pollution in India (Current Scenario)
Annually India sees more than 23 Lakh premature deaths per year according to GAHP, this means we are losing about 23 lakh people that should have lived. We at Air Mech Industrial Technologies are taking one small step at a time to reduce this number; we offer air pollution control system and equipment to improve air quality. We offer following products to help reduce air pollution and make Industrial work environment and general spaces breathable again.
Disease caused by Air Pollution
Unhealthy air is made up of a combination of gases and particles. It is often referred to by the term PM2.5, meaning it is a particle so small that it can pass through human lungs and cause health problems and even death. Inhaling PM2.5 will not kill you immediately, but it will make you sick and lead to premature death. There are clear links between air pollution and diseases such as stroke, ischemic heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer, lower respiratory tract infections, diabetes, and neonatal mortality. In 2019, it was estimated that air pollution was responsible for about 7 million premature deaths, making it nearly 12% of all deaths worldwide in a year.
So, what can be done to prevent these dangerous gases and particles from being released into the air?
Air Filtration System leaves a positive impact on climate as well as human lives.
Manufacturing and material processing Industries are major contributors to air pollution, along with, automobiles and forest fires. The technology already exists for large-scale industrial production without negative impacts on the environment or human health. It’s just a matter of prioritising and choosing investments. A good air filtration system at the source will help mitigate climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This improves air quality for climate and human health. Factories with advanced air filtration systems not only save lives by extracting and filtering the pollution generated by various operations; but also experience increased rate of production efficiency, reduce energy consumption and create a safer working environment for employees. Strict regulatory requirements, hold more countries and industries accountable for enforcing and adopting air quality regulations, and install air filtration systems where necessary to capture hazardous particles and We can save millions of lives. Clean with a Wide Range of Air Filtration Systems. Air Mech Industrial Technologies has the knowledge to protect people, our planet and our production line. Using decades of experience and the latest in air filtration technology, we specialise in industries such as woodworking, welding, metalworking, composites, food processing ,vehicle service, and laboratories
