Infuser Inside from Infuser is an air‑cleaning module that uses hydroxyl radicals to capture and break down the hazardous particles in the air that cause pollution.

Benefits

  • Reduced energy usage
  • Reduced pollution

Applications

  • HVAC
  • Air purification

UN Sustainable Development Goals Addressed

  • Goal 3: Good Health & Wellbeing

  • Goal 11: Sustainable Cities & Communities

The Challenge

Air pollution causes many issues related to public health, agriculture, and the health of the Earth. The particles and gaseous pollution present in polluted air need to be filtered and broken down in order to protect humans and other organisms. Government agencies are setting limits to the amount of emissions a company can have, and these companies are seeking solutions in order to stay in business.

Innovation Details

Infuser Inside is an atmospheric photochemical accelerator that purifies air with continuous flow through five aluminum boxes. The excimer technology helps to remove air pollution using hydroxyl radicals through a 2-stage oxidation process, similar to how pollutants are naturally cleaned from the atmosphere. This reduces the need for filter replacements, which results in higher efficiency with minimal maintenance.

Biomimicry Story

The hydroxyl radical is a very reactive and short-lived molecule that contains one hydrogen atom and one oxygen atom. It is known as the ‘detergent of the atmosphere’ because it helps to break down volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are common atmospheric polluters. In the atmosphere, sunlight breaks up ozone to produce oxygen atoms, which combine with water to make hydroxyl radicals. These go on to break down VOCs and help ‘clean’ the atmosphere.
