An innovative city filter by Żabka, Airly and Oxygen City will clean air from pollution

As part of a partnership with the startups Oxygen City and Airly, Żabka has installed a filter in the center of Poznań that will clean more than 9,000,000 m3 of air in a month. That amount of air would fill an entire 50,000 capacity sports stadium 9 times. The anti-smog filter was placed at ul. Matyi 8 in Poznań, at the Żabka headquarters. Its launch will take place on January 12, 2022.

In its Responsibility Strategy, the Żabka chain has defined a number of ways to have a positive impact on the environment. One is building partnerships. To this end, Żabka Polska has started cooperating with startups – Oxygen City and Airly, the result of which is a city air filter located in Poznań, equipped with a sensor measuring the current level of pollution.

– As a socially responsible company, we are looking for partnerships that enable us to fulfill our commitments regarding sustainable development. We are glad that thanks to the cooperation with Oxygen and Airly we will contribute to the improvement of air quality in the capital of Wielkopolska, especially since the filter has been placed close to our office in the city center, next to the railway station, where tens of thousands of people pass each day – says Anna Grabowska, Vice President Management Board for Consumer Strategies Grupa Żabka.

– We created the city air filter because we do not want to passively watch Polish cities being poisoned. We are glad that, together with Żabka, we can implement this project in Poznań, so that people can live better – says Krzysztof Baranowski, President of Oxygen City.

– We are a project partner and we are responsible for devices that measure and forecast air quality in cities. We will be able to accurately determine the level of contamination, which will in turn optimize the Oxygen device. Thanks to our air quality sensors and the mobile application, “you see the air you breathe differently,” says Marta Szemraj, Country Manager Airly.


From January 12, the Airly sensor will be installed next to the Oxygen device, which will constantly monitor the level of air pollution and PM2.5 and PM10. The operating mode of the Oxygen device will be programmed according to the degree of pollution of the air tested by the Airly sensor and according to the time of day in order to optimize it’s operation, allowing air to be cleaned in the most effective way. The filter is used to effectively fight air pollution, purifying the air. It eliminates over 80% of suspended PM2.5 and PM10 as well as dust, pollen, fungi, mites, bacteria and viruses. The device emits sound with an intensity below 65 dB, i.e. at the level of the traffic volume, comparable also with the noise related to working in the office or the sound of a loud conversation. It should also be emphasized that the filter station is entirely powered by energy from renewable sources. Additionally, photovoltaic panels will be installed on the filter.

We are proud that we could be part of this project. We hope that this year we will implement similar projects and that they contribute to increasing public awareness of air pollution and, as a result, improving air quality in our country.
