COVID-19 has had a far reaching impact on economies and attitudes everywhere. Not surprisingly it has highlighted the need for greater focus on the safety of our environments, the air that we breathe and how we lead our lives generally, at home, at work and at our leisure pursuits.
Long before Human Coronaviruses made us think about removing viruses from the air in our homes, schools and workplaces, the UK had reached dangerous levels of pollutants and particulates that killed thousands each year.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE MAGIC
HEPA filter takes out solid particles and liquid droplets in air down to 0.01 micrometres. Includes pollen, dust and traffic fumes. It also removes bacteria and viruses which are killed by the active-oxygen.
Airflow continues to NCCO reactor. Active-oxygen combines with any volatile organic compounds which are broken down by the NCCO reactor into CO² and H2O.
The Nano-Confined Catalytic Oxidation (NCCO) reactor (catalytic converter) is what sets GojiAir apart from it’s competitors.
The NCCO reactor was originally developed at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and is protected under global patents.
More than 90% of filter products use activated carbon or charcoal, but this is just an absorbent; it gathers contaminated particles and odours like a sponge. Ultimately, this creates a vicious circle in terms of pollution:
- Discarding the spent filter into landfill means that it’s fetid contents are returned into the earth
- Toxins are then released back into the atmosphere, concluding their journey by entering our lungs
NCCO breaks pollutants down. It converts the damaging Volatile Organic Compounds such as ammonia, formaldehyde, acetone etc. into compounds like water, nitrogen and carbon dioxide which are naturally occurring and not toxic.
