Upon activation, the Valeo system eliminates more than 95% of all viruses in a single airflow cycle, including Covid-19, as well as any bacteria or mold present in the air circulating in a bus or coach cabin. Valeo-designed modules are effective throughout a vehicle’s journey with passengers onboard.

The Valeo UV Air Purifier uses ultraviolet rays in a “light labyrinth” that blocks the rays from spreading outside of a metal ventilation box to ensure that vehicle passengers are never exposed to ultraviolet light.

UV light reaches only air circulating in the UV Air Purifier’s ventilation box itself. The UV rays work as both a bactericide and a germicide to kill microbes such as viruses and pathogens. The effectiveness of disinfection against corona viruses has been scientifically proven in European laboratories.


Valeo’s UV Air Purifier is designed to be compatible with buses and coaches of all types and sizes, air conditioned or not. It can be fitted to new vehicles, as well as those already on the road. To date, more than 2,000 buses worldwide have been equipped with Valeo’s new technology, the company reports.

Valeo says its growth driver is innovation. In 2020, the Valeo Group devoted 12 percent of its original equipment sales to research and development and filed 1,174 initial patents. Valeo has nearly 20,000 engineers working across 63 R&D centers around the world to develop new technologies for safer mobility.


During CES 2022, Valeo’s innovations can be found at two locations: Central Plaza – Booth CP17 and Piero’s, 355 Convention Center Drive.
