Confidentiality Clause In A Presentation

information on how to fight for clean air in Japan and what gadgets accompanied this struggle

Last Week heat and smoke will not allow us to sleep. To some it may seem that we are all experiencing a real apocalypse, but if you look at just a few decades ago, we see that the problem is not new and it even managed to successfully fight (not with smoke, but for clean air).

Excerpt from essay about the history of the struggle for air Japan
problem of clean air in front of Tokyo rose sharply as a result of rapid economic growth, often accompanied by a violation of any health standards.
in the Japanese capital to take action to somehow control the side effects of rapid industrialization. In 1949 adopted a resolution Governorate, aimed at combating pollution in the environment, and in 1954 - a ruling on control of noise level. But as population growth and concentration manufacturing industry in Tokyo pollution problems became more acute. Increased air pollution, especially sulfur dioxide and dust particles, water pollution and land subsidence in the low-lying eastern areas of the city.

In the late 60-ies of environmental pollution environment has become a major social problem.

course in Tokyo has not been registered catastrophic disturbances of ecological balance, comparable with Minamata disease (mercury poisoning, first emerged in the Niigata prefecture), Itai-Itai (cadmium poisoning, it is noted in Toyama Prefecture), asthma, took place in Iokkaiti, Mie Prefecture, etc. Nevertheless, the environment in Tokyo in the late 60's - early 70's. can not be called satisfactory.
As a result, a high concentration in the Japanese capital industry and especially cars with their exhaust emissions smog in Tokyo in the first half 70-ies. became simply unbearable.
Then the world went around pictures controllers that in the center of the Japanese capital were forced during use masks.
that flows through the center of Tokyo, Sumida River was heavily polluted by oil. In addition, on the east bank of the river there were unprecedented rates of subsidence of the soil to 20 cm per year.
change for the better came in 1969 when the decision was taken in Tokyo governorship of Pollution Control environment in the capital. After all, it was the first attempt of the city authorities to turn back the ecological processes, and it was quite successful: the positive results are not long in coming. Industrial companies had to urgently remove their plants from the center of Tokyo. Average annual concentration sulfur dioxide in the atmosphere of urban areas for some six years (1966-1972) was halved, from 0.05 up to 0,025 ppm.
problem, however this does not disappear. On the contrary, Pollution modified.
Almost every year since 1970, the suburbs of Tokyo, began to choke on photochemical smog. It was totally new phenomenon in Japan, so it is not immediately razobalis is why this is happening. Only later we found out that the original cause of photochemical smog was to increase the air concentration of oxidants and nitrogen oxides emissions from cars, which number in Tokyo all the time increasing.
Once became clear cause, immediately began to be developed and measures for its elimination. At the same time the Japanese realized that the number of cars in the capital can not be reduced. Rather, it likely will increase. But if you can not reduce the number of vehicles, it is quite possible and even necessary to reduce harmful emissions. Once the problem became clear, were identified and ways to solve it.
The vehicles have to install special devices that significantly reduce or even eliminate harmful exhaust emissions of cars. At the same time was banned by operation of vehicles without such devices. We must bear in mind the fact that in Japan there is a win-win for buyers and sellers system that allows car companies to help motorists after several years to replace the relatively old cars with new ones, setting off the buying a new car price dealer handed over the old one. Due to this in the largest cities in Japan almost all the cars look like new. And the air of such an operation becomes clearer.

And now a word from him

one time in Japan was quite bad with the air and in the same Tokyo in the 70's there appeared oxygen bars where you can buy oxygen cocktail, and make loss of oxygen in the body. They were followed by vending oxygen. Throw 100 yen, breathed pure oxygen for 10 minutes.
Already in the 80 years required in such establishments and bars was not with guns began to disappear from the streets of the city.
Later, in the late 90's, in the wake of improving the quality and life expectancy Corporation released their portable oxygen generators. The first and only (and about the first and only could be wrong) was a company Panasonic
wit device - oxygen generator (model MS-X1 ).
It was in 2003. A year later the unit finalized and presented to the public as soon 3 models
MS-X100 , MS-X8000 and MS-X2, which still can be found in the Japanese Amazon Oxygen Panasonic MS-X2-W .

trend to enrich air with oxygen in the 2000's undecided. For a while, these oxygen generators were sold, Though not yet become a mass product (probably because of the price of $ 500 per unit).
Parallel Panasonic and other Japanese companies working on new generations of climate and air theme - in 2004 (if not mistaken), the first conditioners with built-in oxygen generator , and in 2007 - the first air purifiers .
In the same 2007 production of portable oxygen generators in the Panasonic stopped, giving the niche of small companies.
couple of examples produced today portable oxygen generators
Atmung 3L
Nozomi OG-101
Well, look, that gives Yandex for "oxygen generator" .

Panasonic air conditioners in the function enriching air with oxygen (O2air) existed from 2004 to 2007. For our Russian staff remains a mystery the solution remove the factory technology O2air of technology. Read about it here can
abandoning the technology, Panasonic has continued to produce air conditioners with the generation of oxygen. On Yandex Market, for example, You can find and buy a model CS-XE9DKE
In the current 2010 only a few manufacturers of air conditioners feature the generation of oxygen present in the models. For example, GREE the Chinese and Koreans LG.

Air Purifiers
Caring for parents of young children, the proximity of the highway from apartment windows, are allergic to odors and other problems people have made this air purifier a gold mine for producers of "Air" technology. In the words of the hero of the movie "40 Year Old Virgin," it is impossible prove that the air purifier is not working. Therefore, for customers it always works.

Right now, air purifiers - the most trendy gadget in Japan. They are sold in almost every shop and on the applicability, they differ radically. There is the size of a bedside table (for rooms), but there is a mug (for installation in the car or in the workplace).
The basis of most air purifiers is charcoal filter and fan.
There are also models with humidification and there, too there are nuances in the technology of wet, you can search the web.

Most Japanese air purifiers equipped with the air ionization (Incidentally, and air conditioning too). The benefits of ionization is still no consensus. Look Wikipedia article of the ionizer. We can say only one thing is certain - Ionization helps to combat dust, odors and bacteria.
fact, most of the functions of air purifier doubles with air conditioning. Cleaners are also different from air conditioners lower price and ease of installation, operating instructions manual and cleaning filters. Panasonic delivers on today, only one model of air cleaner F-PXC50 . You can buy it for
8,800 rubles .
Pro air purifiers, I wrote a post 3 years ago, when a bother on this topic. He is still relevant, can
read .

On this excursion into the history of the struggle for oxygen finish. I propose to discuss in the comments of some of this history can still poryt.

could not find:
1. Photo controllers Japanese streets in masks
2. Photo vending oxygen
3. History of struggle for oxygen in Tokyo
Found a book about "history of struggle for oxygen in Japan.
was released in Russia in 1991, CDB. Called "In the fight with the dragon" Kogai ""
seems to find in the open selling it will not work.
Even if the text in the network ...
