How the UVC help purify air and water by eliminating pollutants?

Various human activities liberate the concreteness into the biosphere; some of them negatively affect the environment. The toxins emitted into the atmosphere can pile up in the water, air, and soil. Chemicals dispense into the water and air directly impacts the surroundings, which is commonly known as primary pollutants. And sometimes, when the primary pollutants react with the chemical disinfectants, it produces secondary pollutants.

Some several chemical disinfectants and organisms excrete into the oceans, rivers, and lakes daily along with the industrial waste have significant collision on the quality of water to the downstream as well as in the immediate area. 

What Are Actual Air Pollutants?

The air pollutants have eight classes: 

  1. Sulfur and nitrogen
  2. Volatile organic compounds
  3. Suspended particulate matter
  4. Oxides of carbon
  5. Hazardous air pollutants
  6. Radioactive substances
  7. Photochemical oxidants

Oxides of carbon: The oxides of carbon include carbon dioxide ( CO2) and carbon monoxide (CO). Further, carbon monoxide is the incomplete combustion of fossil fuels present in cigarettes. This gas is poisonous to animals due to odorless air-breathing; this gas causes headaches, nausea, dizziness, and drowsiness at high absorption, which leads to death, whereas carbon dioxide completes the ignition of fossil fuels. This gas contemplated as a greenhouse gas because of its infrared radiation, and excess use of carbon dioxide can lead to global warming. It can also react with the water and cause slightly acidic rain.
