Project ZULU develops purification technology and maps air quality

Sep 24, 2018
Have you ever heard about Project ZULU (Zuivere Lucht)? The aim of Project ZULU is to limit the impact of pollutants on the indoor air quality. Innovative purification technologies are being optimised and tested for implementation to benefit sensitive groups. In collaboration with the inhabitants, we measure the air quality and conceive targeted local solutions.

Project ZULU seeks to reduce the impact of air pollution on the health of susceptible groups of people in the border region of Flanders and the Netherlands. Industrial research into and experimental development of the plasma catalytic air purification technology will enable this to be further optimised and made more sustainable. The impact under realistic circumstances can then be objectively monitored by testing the technology in set-ups for sensitive groups such as children (in schools and daycares). 

By mid-november we will also produce an online tool which will facilitate families to measure the air quality at home. Check our website regularly for more information and updates! 

Project ZULU (Zuivere Lucht)



International cooperation facilitates the creation of solutions to common problems. ZULU is a project that is subsidised by the Interreg Flanders-The Netherlands programme. This programme subsidizes cross-border projects for smart, green and inclusive growth. It is funded from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).


Water, air and the environment. These are the three domains in which VMM is active.
