Recent CE marking is an important milestone for the company
Radon gas i the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers and the second for smokers (between 3-14% depending on the level of exposure). The European Commission and the World Health Organization (WHO) estimate that 84.000 deaths yearly are caused by residential radon worldwide.
The characteristic of the gas makes measurements without the appropriate instruments completely impossible, presenting a higher danger to those exposed to the gas as it can not be detected by the human being alone. It is not uncommon to find high levels in both residential and public buildings. As you might understand, this is a health risk that needs to be taken seriously. And so has the creators behind Bye Radon!
Bye Radon is a first-in-class advanced IoT technology that measures and protects against the natural sources of radon in indoor environments. The device, which additionally complies with RoHS certifications, meaning that the proportion of hazardous, or difficult to dispose of substances, is below the maximum allowed – has now received the CE Mark approval. This is an important milestone for the company and the starting point for an official product launch in the EU.
In Spain, where the technology has been developed, there is still a lack of an Action Plan that should have been put in place to protect its citizens from exposure to this gas. Many European countries are already miles ahead of us in that sense. So, the recently approved certification is a big win in the fight against the lethal effects of Radon gas in human beings and will hopefully work as a starting point for more public awareness and actions taking on the Spanish and international market. With this smart device, there is no longer an excuse not to keep those Radon gas levels under control!
