After 20 years of research and development, a groundbreaking approach to clean air has arrived. Molekule breaks down harmful microscopic pollutants like allergens, mold, bacteria, and even airborne chemicals, and inactivates H1N1 flu virus and bovine and porcine Coronavirus strains.
The EPA states indoor air is up to 5x more polluted than outdoor air. Pollutants are trapped inside where they concentrate and multiply to harmful levels. Studies have shown that indoor pollution contributes to a wide variety of health issues for everyone, not just asthma and allergy sufferers. Whether through the Molekule Air Pro, Air, the Air Mini, or Air Mini+, Molekule is a simple and effective way to remove these harmful pollutants from the air inside your home.
Molekule eliminates pollutants
Inside the Molekule Air unit, there is both a pre-filter and PECO-filter—while the other Molekule models use a single filter hybrid. The pre-filter is designed to take out larger particles such as dust and hair. Then smaller particles are captured in the second-stage PECO-filter where light is used to harmlessly destroy the pollutant at the molecular level.
The Science of clean air
Molekule’s patented technology, Photo Electrochemical Oxidation (PECO), uses free radicals to disassemble and convert pollutants into harmless elements that are actually meant to be in the air. This is done by creating a catalytic reaction that happens when a nanoparticle-coated filter is activated by light. Pollutants are broken down into their most basic molecular components, making them safe for us to breathe.
Let the research show…
Twenty-five years of research and development went into these small but mighty air purifiers that can clean your air, quietly, whether your space is 250 square feet (Air Mini and Air Mini+), 600 square feet (Air), or 1,000 square feet (Air Pro). What’s more—the Air Mini+ and Air Pro come equipped with a particle sensor and auto protect mode, which detect and indicate pollution particles and auto adjust accordingly. Research from multiple universities and laboratories has demonstrated the efficacy of the technology for destroying allergens, mold, RNA and DNA viruses, bacteria, and even VOCs.
IT’S A FAMILY AFFAIR
Dilip Goswami, his sister Jaya Rao, and their father Dr. Yogi Goswami founded Molekule after Dr. Goswami spent more than 20 years researching a solution for his son’s debilitating asthma and allergies, focusing on contaminated indoor air and the power of science to remedy the problem. Today, the family remains committed to helping people all over the world who are suffering from indoor pollution (that’s 9 out of 10 people according to the World Health Organization). They’re taking their efforts beyond the home—to hospitals and other public places like schools, businesses and public transportation—so you and your family can breathe easy.
