A smart air purifying device could help reduce air pollution, according to a research project from The Irish Star.
The paper has conducted an extensive research on the benefits of air purification in Ireland, including an analysis of the number of people using a device.
The findings were published on Thursday.
The study has found that the number who are using the device has been dropping steadily since the early 1990s, although the trend has been steady over the last decade or so.
“The key findings from the study are that the device is being used by fewer people, but the overall population has been growing,” Dr Richard O’Donnell from The O’Connell Group said.
It was found that between 2011 and 2020, the number using the air purifyr increased by 15 per cent. “
In particular, the younger the person the greater the likelihood that they are using a living air filter.”

Dr O’Connor said that there are two major factors which are likely to be responsible for this, with the first being the adoption of living air devices.
“Firstly, there has been an increase in the number and number of devices being marketed to the public.
Secondly, the introduction of the device into households is likely to have resulted in the uptake of devices, with more people using them.”
The study also found that air purifers have a positive impact on the environment, as people who have access to clean air are more likely to reduce their carbon emissions and contribute to the health of the environment.
The researchers also found air purifications are linked to reduced pollution in local areas, with residents in the Cork city region reporting the benefits.
The research also found there is evidence that air filtration devices can help reduce PM2.5, which is particulate material which causes lung and cardiovascular disease, and lead, which causes high blood pressure. “
As well, they are also associated with less particulate pollution in areas where there is a significant reduction in air pollution,” Dr O´Connor said.

It was also found to be beneficial for the lungs, with lung function being improved in people who had the device on for longer.
The results of the study will be published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology.
