Germany Announces €500m Ventilation Subsidies

Updated: 6 days ago

Grant program will promote fresh air to counter coronavirus





The German government has announced a €500m grant program aimed at

improving ventilation in public buildings.


The grants, timed for the winter season, are earmarked for public

offices, museums, theatres, universities and schools. Private firms are

not yet eligible.


It is believed that improved ventilation can help to counter the spread

of COVID-19. Coronavirus, the pathogen responsible for the disease, is

transmitted when tiny droplets of moisture are exhaled by infected

people. Since these so-called 'aerosol droplets' can remain in still

air for up to eight minutes, infection risks increase during the winter

months.


The legislation provides for upgrades to existing HVAC systems and air

purification systems, and also for the installation of CO2 sensors.

Such sensors can highlight the buildup of exhalates in stale air and

prompt staff to open windows or activate air conditioners and mobile

purifiers.


ZiggyTec promotes ventilation in institutions via our ClassFresh and ResiFresh

products.
