Description

Air pollution in southern Chile’s cities – especially from fine dust particles caused by wood-fired systems used for heating and cooking – is a current problem. In cooperation with the city of Coyhaique, twin city with Bern, Switzerland, the “Agencia de Sostenibilidad Energética”, the University of Santiago, the developers of a fine dust filter type yet to be marketed, as well as other local partners, it is planned to use the proven OekoTube electrostatic filters from the Swiss company OekoSolve Ltd., mainly in a low-income neighbourhood. Based on the achieved results and experience gained, a concept for the filters’ market launch will be developed by the project partners and an accompanying group, with representatives from the private sector and various authorities.
