Environmental Engineering Project
Clean Air for Gers // GLEAR
The electrostatic precipitators are used in various sectors including industrial, biological and home usage. However, there is not a suitable model for the situation in Mongolia. Thus, our project aimed to reduce air pollution produced by the ger districts by developing a specific model for common stoves.

Air pollution = Particulates+ Poisonous Gases
Variety of health issues,
The GMIT research project goal is to develop a cheap, easy to use and save technical solution for application in urban ger districts. The social-ethical part of this project seems to be more important than the technical part. Therefore, the Mongolian Government has to be included in the project.
- Considerably reduce air pollution by collecting particulates of dust
- Possibly deliver to every single ger / private home at a cheap price
- Team of students will gather technical experience during the project period and more importantly, they will contribute their knowledge and skill to find a solution to that urgent problem
- Public health will increase due to better air quality
