What's In Your Air ?

Select air purifier manufacturers are now utilizing Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO) technology as a way of removing particulate matter, microbes, gasses and odors from the air. This air purification technology is the most advanced yet. Essentially, PCO technology combines UV rays with a special multi-metal nano catalyst, which creates hydroxyl radicals and super-oxide ions, which are highly reactive electrons. These highly reactive electrons aggressively combine with polluting elements in the air, such as bacteria and VOCs. Once bound together, a chemical reaction takes place between the super-charged ion and the pollutant, effectively "oxidizing" (or burning) the pollutant. This breaks the pollutant down into harmless carbon dioxide and water molecules, making the air more purified. This video first highlights the pervasive problem that indoor air pollution causes, then explains how PCO technology works and how it can dramatically purify air making a healthier and happier home.
