An air purifier is needed to reduce sulfur dioxide and other harmful emissions from combustion of fossil fuels, a process that can emit sulfur dioxide, nitrous oxide and carbon monoxide.
While the technology has been used successfully for years to clean air in Europe, there is an urgent need to deploy this technology for use in the U.S. The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) new Sinic program aims to bring this technology to market by 2020, which would represent a major milestone.
A Sinic purifier uses ozone particles to remove sulfur dioxide from the air.
Sinic is a subsidiary of Sinic Aviation, which was founded in 2004.
The company says it is now operating 20 Sinic aircraft worldwide, and it is working on a fleet of Sinics that will be fully operational by 2020.
According to the company, the goal of the Sinic pilot program is to provide pilots with the ability to operate Sinic air purifiers on commercial flights in the United States.
The program is being managed by Sinic’s subsidiary, Sinic International Aviation.
The Sinic Air Purifier has been the subject of intense competition with the more powerful, cheaper, and quieter alternative, Sinica.
The newer and smaller Sinica has been a hit in the commercial air travel market, and in 2012 the EPA approved Sinica’s air purification system for use on passenger planes.
Sinica also is currently working on its own commercial air purifying program, the Sinica CleanAir Pilot.
The EPA is using the program to develop a new air purifer for the pilot program that would be cheaper and more efficient than the Sinics.
It is unclear what the EPA is getting from the pilot project, though the agency does not specify any specific cost.
