Growing a business
“Tackling environmental issues is a responsibility that we all share and, with the support of the Development Bank, our work is changing the way we understand and measure the impact of toxic air at a local level.”
A six-figure loan from our Wales Business Fund is helping Llanelli-based tech and environmental specialists Vindico to develop pioneering air quality innovations that are leading the way for a more sustainable future.
The company launched their Think Air network in June 2021 and it is already the largest non-governmental background rural and urban air quality monitoring and measuring network in the UK. The initiative has been developed by Vindico and Swansea University and represents an important step towards understanding air pollution – and the impact of PM2.5 (small air particles), carbon dioxide, and other air pollutants – on our health and wellbeing.
Vindico’s latest Think Air product “TASK” (Think Air Schools Kit) has been developed alongside head teachers and aligned with the current Welsh and English curricula. TASK is designed for children of all ages to build, code, and measure the environment around them – at school, at home, and on the daily commute.
