AirLabs, an organization that supplies both air quality monitoring and air filtration systems for businesses, government organizations, and consumers, has announced the company is honored to have been nominated for the 2022 Nobel Peace Prize.
“We are very grateful to be nominated for such a prestigious honor,” said Matthew Johnson, Ph.D., Chief Science Officer of AirLabs.
“We hope this nomination brings attention to the fight against air pollution and to the significant role played by science in developing clean-air technologies for good health and well-being worldwide.”
The Nobel nomination was submitted by Congressman Edgar Erice of the Philippines.
‘The world is at war against the coronavirus which is transmitted through the air. In addition, there is evidence from previous outbreaks of airborne pathogens like SARS and influenza, that breathing polluted air increases the risk of death.
‘The UK’s Office for National Statistics found that exposure to fine particulate matter increases the risk of contracting and dying from COVID 19 by up to 7%.’ In addition to making COVID worse, air pollution itself is deadly.
Every wondered why you get more headaches during the week than on the weekend? Clean air could solve that for you and it is as simple as clipping your #AirBubbl to the headrest, plugging it in to the USB port/cigarette lighter and turning it on. #cleanairmatters #airpollution pic.twitter.com/KghIZN6GDi

‘Studies by the World Health Organization and others show that more people are killed every year by air pollution than by all forms of violence combined, including war. It’s time to raise public awareness and fight air pollution.’
‘A study by the World Bank showed that air pollution is expensive – China lost nearly 10% of its GDP, India over 7%, and Sri Lanka and Cambodia roughly 8%. As wars are often fought for resources we applaud Airlabs’ efforts to end this blight which has a disproportionate effect on developing nations in greatest need.’
The Airbubbl from AirLabs is the first personal and portable air purifier and could be the key to protecting millions of people by stopping coronavirus, other pathogens, and pollution from entering their lungs. People from all walks of life can breathe easy for the first time in years.

From viruses to wildfire smoke the AirBubbl is the only portable air purifier independently tested and verified to be 99%+ effective at removing airborne human coronavirus, as well as other pathogens, dangerous particles, traffic pollution, and gas pollutants.
Air pollution is an invisible killer. Airlabs pollution monitoring system AirScape gives people control by allowing them to see air pollution in real-time.
‘Air pollution comes from local, regional and international sources, according to Johnson.’ ‘People can often reduce their exposure by spending time in green areas, and by controlling sources.’

All AirLabs systems and solutions have their roots in the atmospheric chemistry and airflow engineering knowledge of their experts.
Between them, these research scientists share decades of experience at leading universities, academic institutions, and cleantech companies, improving air quality for all.
‘Scientists worldwide have been working around the clock to unravel the mechanism of airborne transmission of pathogens including coronavirus. Research shows that air pollution makes people more vulnerable to catching a disease and that air pollution increases the severity of disease’ said Johnson.

The AirLabs application will be considered by the Nobel Committee alongside other nominations. Since 1901 the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded 102 times, to 134 laureates, made up of 91 men, 18 women, and 25 organizations.
AirLabs is a leading pioneer in clean air technology. With more than 90% of the world’s population exposed to unsafe levels of air pollution, AirLabs’ mission is to deliver measuring, monitoring, and cleaning solutions that provide valuable insight, enable action, and clean polluted air to make it safe for people to breathe.
The company’s international team of atmospheric chemistry scientists, airflow engineers, and sensor specialists has developed cutting-edge and scientifically proven solutions for use by governments, businesses, and individuals to tackle the growing problem of urban air pollution.
The AirBubbl air cleaner contains patented filtration and airflow technology that effectively removes particulates such as dust, pollen, soot, fibres, PM2.5, and PM10, along with bacteria and viruses and gaseous pollutants such as Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2), Ozone, and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).

Luminator Technology Group Earns Platinum Award in 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program
Best COVID-19 Emergency Response Solution
Luminator develops and delivers technology with tangible benefits that support transit bus and rail car manufacturers as well as public transit operators around the globe.
Luminator’s Renew™ Air Treatment system dispenses Grignard Pure, an antimicrobial air treatment through a connected, technologically advanced system that measures and automatically adjusts the amount of Grignard Pure that is dispensed in the air.
The adaptive system utilizes on-board sensors to automatically adjust the system based upon the fresh air intake and other conditions in the vehicle, maintaining proper concentration for efficacy – even with doors opening and closing as passengers embark and disembark the vehicle
As conditions change, such as fluctuations of fresh air intake throughout the route, the system maintains an effective level to continuously kill virus particles in the air.
Luminator Technology Group delivers globally-recognized technology solutions that increase intelligence, safety, and efficiency for public transit operations

The United States was forever changed 20 years ago on September 11th, and we were fortunate to have many of those who responded to those horrific tragedies join us at the 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Luncheon.
In the days that followed 9/11, the critical needs of protecting our country catapulted us into new and innovative ways to secure our homeland – which is how many of the agencies and enterprise organizations that are today ‘ASTORS’ Awards Champions, came into being.
Our 2021 keynote speaker featured a moving and informative address from TSA Administrator and Vice-Admiral of the United States Coast Guard (Ret), David Pekoske; to our attendees who traveled from across the United States and abroad, on the strategic priorities of the 64,000 member TSA workforce in securing the transportation system, enabling safe, and in many cases, contactless travel.
Legendary Police Commissioner William Bratton of the New York Police Department, the Boston Police Department, and former Chief of the Los Angeles Police Department was also live at the event, meeting with attendees and signing copies of his latest work ‘The Profession: A Memoir of Community, Race, and the Arc of Policing in America,’ courtesy of the generosity of our 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Premier Sponsors.
The 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program was Proudly Sponsored by AMAROK, Fortior Solutions and SIMS Software, along with Returning Premier Sponsors ATI Systems, Attivo Networks, Automatic Systems, and Reed Exhibitions.
