The carmaker Jaguar — Land Rover has announced their plans to create an air filtration system designed to combat up to 97% of viruses and airborne bacteria. The technology is similar to having a face mask for a car’s HVAC system, as it’s modelled on the Panasonic Nanoe X technology.
The company’s other models which also include the Land Rover Defender comes with the Nanoe technology and PM2.5 filter system installed. By creating the Nanoe X, the cars will be ten times more protected and offer a much greater level of safety for the driver and passengers inside. The actual technology relies on emitting a high voltage which creates trillions of hydroxyl (OH) radicals enveloped in nano-sized water molecules. It’s one of the sturdiest forms of antibacterial defence created by man.
The viruses and bacteria proteins become nullified as soon as they come in contact with the filtration system which kills the protein’s ability to reproduce or grow. The OH radicals also destroy other allergens and mold, but the biggest factor is, they are completely harmless to humans.
One thing which Jaguar Land Rover has stimulated is, they’re so confident about the new technology that instead of performing the tests in-house, they have decided to award the British laboratory Perfectus Biomed to perform all tests that simulate a car’s ventilation system, in the recirculation mode for periods of 30-minutes in a scientifically sealed chamber environment. The initial results came out at 97% of the viruses and airborne viruses were destroyed. Also, the Panasonic Nanoe X technology has now been independently proven to work by a leading French laboratory called Texcell, declaring 99.995% of the coronaviruses.
