Air Filter Leader Provides Drivers With Eco-Friendly Tips

Leading Air Filter Manufacturer Camfil USA, a leader in clean air solutions, offers tips on driving smarter as one of the ways to reduce air pollution and traffic emissions.

Riverdale, NJ, USA, 03/01/2019 / /

Riverdale, NJ / March 1, 2019 / — Of all the different forms of pollution attacking our planet today, traffic emissions are responsible for over half of the nitrogen oxides and carbon monoxide, and almost one-quarter of the hydrocarbons being released into the air.

These continuing high levels of air pollution pose a number of health risks to humans, along with virtually every other plant and animal.

When looking at current emission figures, it’s easy to see how much damage transportation does to the environment. In fact, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the use of gasoline and diesel engines for transportation in 2016 resulted in the emission of:

  • 1,102 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) – gasoline vehicles
  • 437 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) – diesel vehicles

These numbers are only a small segment of a much larger problem, however.

Commercial and High Efficiency Air Filters Are Only Part of the Solution

With billions of cars, trucks, buses, trains, motorcycles, lawn mowers and other fossil fuel powered machines in operation around the world, outdoor air quality is considered poor, depending on where you live. The use of both industrial and commercial HEPA filter air purifiers can – and does – help significantly indoors, but the rest of the planet still suffers.

According to National Geographic Magazine, if all fossil fuel burning vehicles on the road today were replaced with electric powered vehicles (EV’s), oil consumption would be reduced by up to 21 million barrels a day. This would result in a reduction of CO2 emissions by 3.2 billion metric tons annually, which is currently equivalent to 60 percent of all U.S. emissions today.

So, how can you impact change by driving smarter as only one driver amongst the billions on the planet?
