Activated Carbon Filter Now Standard in all Volkswagen Models

Volkswagen has begun to fit all its models with an activated carbon filter. The technology has been available for a long time as part of the Air Care Climatronic option, which filters out pollen, bacteria, fungal spores and particulates before they make their way through the ventilation system into the interior. Furthermore, the filter technology with activated carbon layer also converts harmful gases like nitrogen dioxide, leaving the interior air cleaner and less disturbing. Pollen, bacteria, fungal spores, particulates and harmful gases increasingly present health issues. Although the amount of pollution caused by mobility and transport is decreasing steadily, air quality inside automobiles plays an important role in health and well-being.

One of the greatest advantages of an activated carbon filter for the interior is how effectively it handles harmful nitrogen dioxide gas, which belongs to the group of gaseous oxides of nitrogen – also known as nitrogen oxides formed during the combustion process. Nitrogen oxide content is the leading criterion when assessing air quality. The activated carbon is capable of reducing the NO2 concentration, thus making for a more pleasant journey.

Volkswagen already offers air conditioning systems for a host of models. For example, the Air Care Climatronic air purification system uses an air quality sensor that is more effective than a classic filter, due to the use of activated carbon with an allergen layer. This disables even the tiniest allergens. When the Air Care function is activated on the air conditioning menu, the incoming fresh air and the proportion of re circulated air inside the car are mixed and cleaned so that the quality of the air remains at a constant high level. In addition, the air quality sensor constantly (every millisecond, to be exact) registers excessive levels of certain pollutants in the outside air and switches to recirculation mode if necessary.
