Enviro Group Asia, a consulting and service provider of indoor environmental quality management, through its subsidiary Enviroverks Malaysia, targets 50 hospitality properties to use its new air quality monitoring device, Enviro IntelliAQ, by the end of 2019.
Enviro Group Asia group chief executive, Nitesh Malani said he was confident that the innovation had a bright market potential due to the rapid growth of Malaysia’s building industry.
“We spend more than 80 per cent of our time indoors, the sick building syndrome or building-related Illness has been a cause of concern for most building occupants who fall ill due to poor indoor air quality,” he told Bernama at the Enviro InteliAQ system launch, which saw the group entering into a partnership with Alila Bangsar Kuala Lumpur hotel.
Nitesh said Malaysia was the first country to have launched the Enviro IntelliAQ before it would be introduced to other regional markets.
The Enviro IntelliAQ powered by uHoo, a Singapore-based hardware startup that detects the quality of indoor air, features an engineering of nine air quality sensors packed in a tiny device the size of a coffee mug.
It is powered by a high-performance Advanced RISC Machine (ARM)-based processor that helps building or facility managers measure and manage indoor air quality.
