Growing numbers of buses and taxis are being treated with ARC-FLASH for the health management of drivers who work inside the vehicles for many hours and as an environmental service for passengers.
As the effects and reliability of photocatalytic ARC-FLASH have been recognized by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, treated vehicles are exempted from monthly disinfection of the interior.
Application has been completed for approximately 60,000 taxis throughout Japan (as of December 2003).
