Dyson purification technology is now in its sixth generation, using fully-sealed HEPA filtration and intelligent sensing to control pollution in the home. There are still problems to solve, and Dyson is committed to understanding how design engineering can tackle global issues - even investing £1m in the Priestley Lab on Dyson’s Malmesbury campus to investigate Formaldehyde destruction.
Ongoing partnerships with the Dyson Scientific Advisory Board and pioneering institutions, such as Kings College London, broaden Dyson’s knowledge and involvement in critical air quality research projects. The James Dyson Foundation works closely with Dyson engineers when creating new resources to utilise this growing expertise and dissect it in a format for students.
“Air pollution is a worldwide issue and, just like other global problems, there are many possible solutions," says Rowley. "By hearing how Dyson engineers approached the problem and the products that resulted, students will understand how science and engineering can be applied to tackle pollution.
"They can then begin to address these issues in conversations beyond the classroom and hopefully consider engineering as a possible career.”
