Researchers have developed a broad-spectrum absorber that removes excess levels of carbon dioxide from the air.
The new development handles 450 cubic meters. m³ / hour and can control the CO2 concentration in the room. If it is 1000 ppm or ppm, then the installation starts to work actively until the indicator becomes 600 ppm, according to GOST.
Household air purifiers usually cannot filter CO2, this is the main advantage of the installation. The device, as the press service of the Troitsk Institute for Innovation and Thermonuclear Research (SSC RF TRINITI, a Rosatom enterprise) has specified, can be manufactured in three versions: mobile, stationary and built-in ventilation.
Experts have created a fully functional absorber sample for absorbing excess concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2), which can be used in educational, medical institutions, offices, sports clubs.

Excess CO2 in a room can affect performance and well-being: the absorber destroys bacteria and viruses, cleans the air of allergens, and also saturates it with microelements contained in sea salt.
Earlier, the WHO said that in 2019 the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere rose sharply: the average annual rate reached 410 ppm. The average CO2 concentration in the air in July 2021 was 416.65 ppm. According to biologists, if a person briefly inhales oxygen with a carbon dioxide concentration of 500 to 1,000 ppm, then this causes distinct shifts in the function of external respiration.
