Air Cleaner Destroys Volatile Organic Compounds and Eliminates Odors

Article excerpt

A new stand-alone air-cleaning system is available for treating IAQ problems in industrial and commercial environments. The Clean Air Plant (CAP[TM]) uses a unique biological process to remove fuels, heavy metals, solvents, smoke, toxic fumes, and gases from the air, including carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), nitrogen oxides ([NO.sub.x]), and ozone. CAPs work by degrading these substances into unharmful products like carbon dioxide and water.

Unlike existing air cleaners, which merely store contaminants for later disposal, CAPs draw in ambient air, remove airborne particulates, and use nonpathogenic microorganisms and enzymes to destroy contaminants and purify the air. CAPs have no filters that need to be replaced, consume little energy, have no biomass buildup, and do not contribute to additional air pollution. They actually destroy air pollution instead of just filtering or venting it.

A small model also is available. Designed and manufactured by SRE, Inc. …
