Battery & Fun

Clean Air

Air Pollution

Just breathe.

While you still can. Clean air filling our lungs used to be a fundamental right, but somewhere down this dirty road, it could become a privilege. Not on our watch. And by our, we mean you included. Be a part of the mind-shift, become an Aironaut.

Pollution Mapping

Wherever
you are.

If your Noordung is with you, so are we. Carefully collecting data at a 0.5 sec interval, presenting it in an easy to comprehend way inside your Noordung app.

Crowdsourcing

People’s data.

It’s ours and ours only. Never to be censored or alternated. Just numbers speaking our purpose, being our voice. And Aironauts, our decentralized messengers on a mission for your next “inhale-exhale” to be cleaner.

Mission

Perfect path.

If you knew there is an increased possibility for an accident at a specific point of your commute, would you choose to challenge your destiny each and every day? No? We thought so. With Noordung, you get to know where to find and avoid the silent serial killer - air pollution.

Vision

Free sky.

What happens when a symbol for freedom loses its own freedom? With all of our being, we refuse to participate in a future where we get to know the answer, as we aim to create a reality where the truth is told by our own numbers, empowering the communities to proactively take the right steps towards a cleaner tomorrow.

Knowledge

Air pollution

Air pollution is contamination of both the indoor and outdoor air environment by any chemical, physical or biological agent that modifies the natural characteristics of the atmosphere. Household combustion devices, motor vehicles, industrial facilities and forest fires are the most common sources of air pollution.

Particulate matter (PM)

Particulate matter (PM) includes microscopic matter suspended in the air or water. Airborne particles are called aerosols, which are classified according to their size. The toxicity of the air we breathe is mainly caused by the particles that are less than 10 µm in diameter (PM10 - less than 10 µm and PM2.5 - less than 2.5 µm).

Health effects

Evolution has never faced the air pollution of present day proportions and our lungs do not possess the weapons to neutralize it. Numerous studies have shown a positive correlation between the exposure to particulate matter and increased number of hospital admissions. Harmful in a short and long-term view, they are especially lethal to our respiratory and cardiovascular systems.
