Nitrous Oxide Cracking Technology
The Medclair Mobile Destruction Unit (MDU) is an innovative solution which collects residual nitrous oxide from exhaled air and subsequently destroys the gas:
- Converts more than 99% of exhaled N2O into harmless Nitrogen and Oxygen
- Self supporting system with low noise level and minimum energy consumption
- Mobility combined with ease makes it suitable for various healthcare settings
- Plug and play system enables rapid implementation
- Reduces exposure to nitrous oxide and contributes to a healthier working environment for staff
Its unique patented exhalation valve diverts contaminated breath away from the handset, virtually eliminating the risk of cross-infection. Our collaborative approach with Medclair has already supported the UK’s first climate-friendly gas and air labour at Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary in September 2021.

Implementing Nitrous Oxide Cracking Technology in the Labour Ward
Implementing nitrous oxide cracking technology in the labour ward to reduce occupational exposure and environmental emissions: a quality improvement study.
Mitigating nitrous oxide emissions alongside thorough evaluation of how we can reduce our waste is hugely important to us as an organisation. Nitrous oxide, while a safe and clinical useful medicine, has almost 300 times the global warming effect of carbon dioxide and we can’t ignore that. This destruction technology offers us an opportunity to address this issue head on and we look forward to breaking new ground with the mobile units the minute they arrive! Both MedClair and BPR Medical have been a huge support throughout this journey and our teams have learned so much already about what this will offer.”
