The Rajaprajanukron Foundation, under Royal Patronage, installed four air- purifiers on Friday (January 24) in the vincinites of Victory Monument in a trial of their effectiveness in filtering out PM2.5 dust particles, said Silpasuay Raweesaengsoon, permanent secretary of Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA), on Friday (January 24).

The machines can purify polluted air at the rate of two cubic metres per second. Placed in areas with heavy traffics, they help reduce the level of pollution caused by vehicle emissions.

The purifiers will be switched on daily from 5am to 12am, and 2pm to 8pm.

“If the air purifiers prove practical, they will be installed at bus stops, schools, and other busy places, ” the permanent secretary said.
