Bus filter from Southampton - the first step to cleaner cities
At the end of September 201? one of the passenger routes of the city of Southampton (which is located on the southern coast of the UK) came out with a prototype of a modernized bus called Bluestar, which will change the world for the better, and it also has free WiFi onboard.

“It's nice to see innovative attempts to clean our dirty air. However, this should not detract from the real priority - to minimize the pollution itself in the first place. We need less transport on the road, and more environmentally friendly cars. Ultimately, we would like to see buses, in which 3r-377 will be approved as the standard. using zero-emission technology 3r3r888. from the exhaust pipe. But this will not happen without concerted action by the UK government, which should introduce a national network of clean zones to protect people from the most dangerous pollutants in the most polluted areas of our cities and towns. ”
What is the result?
So far, the modified bus Bluestar runs only through the streets of Southampton.
After three months of testing, the Bluestar bus filter will be dismantled, its weight will be measured to understand how different it will be from the initial one, and samples of the filter elements will be examined and further researched.
If it is recognized as successful by this method of filtering air masses (if filtering turns out to be effective), this technology will be implemented on all ?600 Go-Ahead buses.
Considering that the company also carries out bus transportation in Singapore and Dublin, the Bluestar project will make a huge contribution to the cause of air purification on the planet.
