In a bid to fight Delhi’s worsening air pollution levels, telecom operator Vodafone India has set up an air purifying bus shelter at the city’s Safdarjung bus stand and plans to set up two more such shelters at other prime locations.
The air purifier will absorb the surrounding polluted air, process it and the filter air that can be supplied to any close room kind of system. “The Air-Purifying Bus Shelter’s objective will be to provide a comparatively breathable environment to the people and to bring some relief to the public,” the company said.
The air-purifying bus shelter is covered by plastic curtains and has three industrial air purifiers installed. The Indicator System inside the bus stop contains two grids of LED. One LED grid displays level of pollution of outside area and another displays the level of pollution inside the bus stop so the passengers get to know the difference between level of pollution.
“The alarming air quality in Delhi NCR has made us contemplate the possible ways of addressing the issue. The bus shelter is a manifestation of our ideas put together to tackle the distressing situation,” Apoorva Mehrotra Business Head Delhi-NCR said.
