Prevost launched EnviroCare — a dual ionization system that sanitizes and cleans the air and surfaces in coaches through the air and climate system. A proven technology used in home and automotive applications globally, EnviroCare supports motorcoach operators in providing a safe environment and boosting confidence for group travel riders.
“Operators have been using deep cleaning methods to sanitize coaches with the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now we can ensure the air and surfaces in the entire coach, including those hard-to-reach places, will be sanitized,” said Francois Tremblay, VP and GM of Prevost. “We are proud to bring this solution to our customers and their fleets creating an environment where groups can feel comfortable traveling together again.”
The dual ionization system is added to the cabin climate system and helps to suppress and deactivate viruses, bacteria, and mold that are airborne or on surfaces. EnviroCare uses a balance of positive and negative ions to attach to and change the structure of viruses, bacteria, and other pollutants to create harmless and invisible water vapor.
Additionally, Prevost leads the industry in air flow standards. All the air within the passenger cabin is refreshed every five minutes and the air inside the coach is filtered every minute. Replenishing and filtering the air so often reassures passengers they are not breathing contaminates from other sources.
