Sol-Air Chosen as Supplier for Dockside Green


Kelowna, B.C. (July, 19, 2007) Dockside Green, North America’s first community to target LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) platinum certification has awarded the contract for air decontamination and odor control to Sol-Air Systems of Kelowna, B.C.  This system will eliminate all odors from the development’s waste water treatment plan.

The UV Radiation System
The efficient and chemical free UV Radiation system uses a natural process that adds nothing new to the environment and uses up to 90% less energy when compared to competing technologies, resulting in a very small ecological footprint, while also operating with lower capital costs.

UV Radiation catalyses the breaking of ambient oxygen and water vapor molecules into O+ and OH-. These short lived free radicals oxidize the odorous contaminants in the air. This reaction results in a sequential and instantaneous gas breakdown of the contaminants with minimal by-products, such as elemental sulfur, CO2, water vapor, molecular oxygen and trace ozone.

About Dockside Green
Dockside Green has also received recognition for its triple bottom line approach to creating an ecological, social and environmentally responsible community. To date, the awards received have been bestowed by the Royal Architectural Institute, Canada Architect Magazine, Canadian Urban Institute and the Planning Institute of BC.
