At the heart of all things Evergen, lies the unwavering mission to bring new and innovative sustainability technologies to market. Technologies that reduce our carbon emissions, clean our air, and give us a healthier space to live and to work within the built environment.
Air contamination is as bad today as ever. Low indoor air quality (IAQ) and subsequent infection rates from respiratory disease together with healthcare associated infections (HAIs) means medical institutions often suffer the highest rates of air contaminants, including MRSA, Norovirus and SARS-CoV-2.
Infection can spread easily once airborne. Respiratory infections such as COVID-19 can be transmitted through respiratory droplets when a person is in close contact with someone who has respiratory symptoms (eg: coughing and sneezing). In addition, airborne transmission of infection can occur during aerosol generating procedures (AGP’s).
To reduce the risk of particle transmission, it is necessary to improve IAQ and increase dispersion by creating more airflow in the room. In a medical setting this may mean full air rotations of up to 26 air changes per hour, (ACH) which can be challenging.
Now, Evergen Air brings IAQ solutions for ultimate air decontamination. Accredited to ISO 16890 and certified by leading global institutions and laboratories, such as BSRIA, the ILH in Berlin, CETIAT, IRAM and the NPL, healthcare providers can rest assured that Evergen Air can both reduce infection and prevent the spread of disease with proven hospital grade technology.
Typically, contaminant AGP and viruses, mould and bacteria particles fall between 0.1 – 1µm in size with an average of 0.126µm. Unlike other providers Evergen Air never uses HEPA filters to trap these particles, as the contaminants can still escape or regrow. Instead, Evergen Air uses electrostatic precipitators which destroys particulate matter down to as small as PM1/ 0.1µm.
Importantly, Evergen Air technology is effective in mitigating COVID-19 particles and is a vital component in reducing the spread of this disease. Protecting staff and patients from contaminated infected air is vital.
Evergen Air can provide a number of solutions from portable ventilation of varying sizes to a full purification technology install either into new builds or retrofits into integral AHUs, HVAC and centralised ventilation systems. For any healthcare environment protecting staff from exposure is just as important as protecting patients. Having staff away on sick leave means more pressure on both existing manpower and financial resource.
Evergen Air technology can save lives, livelihoods and is an important part of any infection control delivered by an institution.
