Noise Barriers as Novel Air Pollution Removal Devices

Noise barriers as novel air pollution removal devices: Over the last five years, researchers at the School of Engineering (Lubitz, Mahmud, & Van Heyst) have been working with a private company, Envision SQ, to develop a novel way of removing common airborne contaminants associated with vehicular traffic. The collaboration has recently expanded to include the ACE wind tunnel at UOIT where full scale tests of the noise barrier were recently conducted to assess the novel design including air flow through the device and the removal efficiency of oxides of nitrogen.
