The AiroCide story begins in space.
NASA had a problem.
Transporting man into deep space has a variety of challenges. Chief among them is a sustainable food supply. But a space garden is more complex than it seems. Why? Because of ethylene gas. In a sealed environment — like a spacecraft — ethylene build-up is toxic. So toxic in fact, that it kills the plants and vegetables it is meant to ripen. And so they turned to science.
Their Solution was elegant.
A unique air purification technology — Photocatalytic Oxidation. Requiring almost no maintenance. Producing no harmful by-products. And using no more power than a few 100-watt light bulbs.
And — it worked.
Now free of ethylene, the astronauts would have a sustainable food supply for their odyssey.
Built to remove ethylene in space– but so much more powerful on earth.
This is Rocket Science.
AiroCides patented NASA technology utilizes a reaction chamber packed with tiny catalysts that have been coated in a proprietary solution that will not delaminate. When excited, a 3.2-volt electron is emitted from their highly reactive surface, a water mole- cule is split and a surface bound hydroxyl radical (-OH) is formed. Any organic, solid or gaseous, regardless of size, that collides with it is instantly mineralised. Not only does this effectively eliminate ethylene gas, it has also been clinically proven to eradicate volatile organic compounds (VOCs), viruses, bacteria, fungi, and mold — even anthrax. From food preservation to health care this technology works. Pure Air. Pure NASA.
