New Delhi: Use of technology which reduces specific pollutants in the air and deploying spotters to identify participants who need medical attention are among the measures, the organisers will put in place during the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon.
The organisers outlined medical and other facilities that will be put in place for about 34,000 participants, expected to compete on Sunday.
Patented ecologically safe technology Ultra High Frequency radio pulses will be concentrated over the course to catalyse clearance of air pollutants primarily through dry deposition, the organisers said.
The entire course will be washed with an ecologically safe reagent, mixed with effluent treated water to avoid the rise of dust/settled SPM. In addition to the above measures, Procam International, the promoters, are working closely with Devic Earth and their Pure Skies system.
The technology reduces specific pollutants such as: carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide and particulate matter less than 10 microns.
Each system covers an area of over 10 kms. Two of these systems will be deployed at the event.
Medical partner Max Healthcare has made elaborate arrangements to ensure that every participant has a safe and healthy run.
