Meet Molekule, the first molecular air purifier
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, viruses, and even airborne chemicals.
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. Molekule is approved by the EPA as a suitable way to remove these harmful pollutants from the air in your home, so you and your family can breathe easy.
Molekule doesn’t just capture pollutants – it eliminates them
There is both a pre-filter and PECO-filter in the attractive Molekule unit. 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), disassembles and converts pollutants into harmless elements that are 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.
Real people, real proof
Research from multiple universities and laboratories has demonstrated the efficacy of the technology for destroying, allergens, mold, viruses, bacteria, and even VOCs.
But does it really help you breathe easier?
A beta trial was conducted on 28 participants including asthma and allergy sufferers. After using Molekule, there was no difference in total symptom score between allergy and non-allergy sufferers. Results point to the potential for Molekule to immediately improve allergy sufferers’ quality of life.
