Nanofibres benefit air filtration
Thursday, 23 March 2017

Assistant professor Tan Swee Ching (left), Sai Kishore Ravi (right) and their team from the National University of Singapore's Faculty of Engineering developed a nanofibre solution that creates thin, see-through air filters (held by Mr Sai) that can remove up to 90 per cent of PM2.5 particles and achieve 2.5 times better air flow than conventional air filters. At the National University of Singapore (NUS), thin, see-through air filters have been made from a new nanofibre solution. They are capable of removing up to 90 per cent of PM2.5 particles and are said to achieve air flow of 2.5 times better than conventional air filters. As an added bonus, they can also improve natural lighting and visibility while blocking harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays.
