Air purification system trialed in Dublin pub in bid to create safer environment for patrons

Duffy's pub in Malahide have collaborated with Hytech.ie to trial an air filtration system, which could create a safer environment for diners.

Rodney Cadden of Hytech.ie said he hopes such systems can help wet pubs reopen earlier in 2021, as vaccines are rolled out across Ireland.

The device sucks in air and draws it through a UV light, which kills airborne coronaviruses, before releasing the air back into circulation.

Rodney Cadden of Hytech said that an independent company will be measuring air quality in Duffy's pub before and after the devices have been used. He hopes proof of the device's effectiveness will start discussions around funding for publicans, helping wet pubs reopen safely in 2021.
