Protective Shield against COVID-19 for Buses – Valeo Receives Sustainability Award for UV Purifier

Valeo has received the International busplaner Sustainability Award 2021, in the category ‘Vehicle Equipment (Interior),’ for its UV Purifier for buses and coaches. The technology, which is the most powerful in the world, clears the air of more than 95% of its microbes, viruses and bacteria while the vehicle is on the move with passengers on board.

The win was announced at the BUS2BUS 2021 conference.

Its effectiveness against SARS‑CoV‑2 has been scientifically proven by the Frankfurt University Hospital and the Institute for Laser Technologies in Medicine and Metrology at the University of Ulm (ILM).

The tests carried out by the ILM confirmed that Valeo’s UV Purifier has the ability to eliminate viruses with 95% efficiency in a single airflow cycle. The tests also show that the air change rate is very efficient – higher than the level recommended by the World Health Organization to limit the risk of infection by the spread of airborne viruses and bacteria.
