No purifiers for schools

Updated 2017-01-18 10:02:38 Shanghai Daily

Shanghai school authorities have decided it is not feasible to put air purifiers in classrooms to protect students from the city's pollution, despite requests from parents.

The Shanghai Education Commission has said household purifiers were too small and industrial cleaners, such as those used in factories, were too noisy.

"We have been doing research since last year to evaluate the necessity and practicality of equipping schools with air cleaning facilities," Ding Li, director of the commission's sport, health and arts department, told Shanghai Daily. "The installation of air cleaners will not be very effective."
