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
Targets SCOPE 1 of NHS Net Zero agenda and can remove 50% of anaesthetic CO2 emissions now.
A complete mobile solution: BPR Medical’s Ultraflow™ analgesic demand valve creates a closed system for scavenging gases and helps integrate the Medclair MDU technology.

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.

Case Study

BPR Medical and Medclair Support UK’s First Climate-Friendly Gas and Air Labour

A collaborative approach in working towards a NetZero NHS. The collaboration has already supported the UK’s first climate-friendly gas and air labour at Newcastle’s Royal 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.”

By virtually eliminating the production of nitrous oxide in this way, we are creating a safer space for mothers during labour and helping to protect the environment their babies will grow up in.”
