Novel nanofibre solution turns ordinary non-woven mesh into air filters that block PM2.5 particles
ASSISTANT Professor Tan Swee Ching and his Ph.D. student Sai Kishore Ravi, from the Department of Materials Science & Engineering, have developed an innovative nanofibre solution that creates thin, see-through air filters that can remove up to 90 per cent of PM2.5 particles, and achieve high air flow of 2.5 times better than conventional air filters.
