Environment Air RemediationAir Purifier
1) Whisper quiet Sleep easy. Our air purifiers are made for even the lightest snoozers. 2) Ozone-free Not only do our air purifiers not emit ozone, they destroy it.
Bacteria, mold, viruses and chemicals – these are some of the most common pollutants that affect the quality of indoor air and impact our health. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that indoor air can be five times more polluted than outdoor air, leading a team of researchers from the University of South Florida (USF) to invent a novel solution. More than 20 years ago, Dr. Yogi Goswami was motivated to improve indoor air quality after watching his son suffer from debilitating asthma and allergies. He tried traditional air purifiers but found that these devices only capture pollutants rather than eliminate them, meaning they can easily mix back into the air. Feeling dissatisfied with current technology, Goswami was determined to find an answer – and that’s exactly what he did.
The air filter utilizes photocatalysts, which generate a chemical reaction using light energy. When dangerous pollutants come in contact with photocatalysts on the filter surface under the presence of UV light, they are immediately broken down and eliminated. Having developed the first-ever molecular air purifier, Goswami and his wife, Lovely, took the technology to market and launched a successful company by the name Molekule. But Goswami and his team weren’t satisfied yet—they discovered a way to make the technology better and partnered with USF through a Matching Grants Research Program (MGRP) project to do so.
