The Benefits of Active Air Purification Technology for the Retail Sector

By Andrew Hobbs, Founder and MD of HVAC and air filtration specialists, Better Indoors

For the first quarter of 2021, the high street was non-existent as COVID-19 continues to wreak havoc throughout the retail industry.

However, with non-essential retail now open across the UK, it could be argued that the light is at the end of the tunnel. Yet, with many reports pinpointing both retail stores and retail workers as high-risk ‘spreaders’ of COVID-19, the main challenge is creating of a COVID-secure environment that ensures retail can stay open for the long-term.

One such method that has been overlooked is the installation of Active Air Purification Technology, with proven results for indoor environments.

What is Active Air Purification Technology?
Most air purification technologies are passive in that they can only have any effect when the air containing the pollutant comes into close proximity or passes through the unit.

Active air purification technology is not limited in this way and is effective in every cubic cm of indoor air and surface space simultaneously and continuously. This means pollutants, like viruses and bacteria, are instantly treated no matter where or when in the indoor space they are emitted or exposed which is significant with COVID transmission.

Whether required to mitigate microbials, allergens or dangerous gases and VOCs, active technology offers a unique solution to destroying microbials instantly, offering a safer and more effective approach to air purification in domestic, commercial and industrial environments.

Active air purification technologies that are safe and proven and used by millions around the world offer an added layer of protection to indoor spaces that is simply not possible under current COVID mitigation guidance measures.

REME is an active air purification technology developed and patented 15 years ago by RGF Environmental Group, a COVID critical environmental innovator and manufacturer headquartered in the United States.

Using no chemicals or harmful substances, REME comprises a number of known air purification technologies and sciences in one product. Its active capability works by producing and maintaining similar concentrations of hydrogen peroxide molecules as those found in the outdoor air and combines a process of bipolar ionisation.

Retail to Stay Open
In understanding exactly how active air purification technology works and its capability to successfully destroy COVID-19, it’s clear that it presents an opportunity for the retail sector to reopen and remain open for the long-term.

Ultimately, the UK retail industry has taken a serious blow as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Installing Active Air Purification Technology not only removes reliance on people’s behaviour, but also installs confidence and assurance for both UK Government and consumers, enabling retail to recover once and for all.
