COMBATING URBAN AIR POLLUTION.

WHY TAKE AIR POLLUTION SERIOUSLY?


Air pollution is one of the most talked about issues globally, regularly appearing on the first pages of national and international press. Yet, despite the gravity of the issues at hand and the impact on health, little seems to be being done, with widespread efforts focusing more on secondary problems instead of at the source.

We feel that of the most pressing issues in cities, air pollution should be at the top of the agenda, falling in line with our commitment to improving health in cities and highlighting the importance of sustainability for future generations.

"The shameful state of London's toxic air today has triggered a 'very high' air pollution alert"

Vertical Future is developing a product to combat air pollution in cities - a difficult road of travel for product development and innovation.

The product focuses on reducing the effect of emissions, specifically Nitrogen Dioxide, from vehicles and other urban sources - meaning cleaner air for urban dwellers.

We are currently at the product development and testing stage and will be releasing full details to the press at the end of this process, which we expect to conclude during 2018.
