Air Purification Systems
Air pollution is a severe health risk factor in the 21st century, with millions of premature deaths caused by inadequate air quality. In 2020, the need for clean indoor air became even more vital. Globally, the COVID-19 pandemic with its unprecedented mass lockdowns that forced a significant part of the world’s population indoors for extended periods of time and, locally, the wildfires on the US west coast, among other factors, resulted in a surge in demand for air purification systems.
Standard commercial air purification systems are adequately equipped to eliminate micron-sized particles like pollen, smoke and dust. However, most air purifiers on the market are limited in their effectiveness in the submicron region, especially for how they handle biological pathogens. Even systems equipped with High-Efficiency Particulate Air (“HEPA”) filters do not provide complete protection, so better air purification methods are needed.
To address this market demand, G6 Materials is developing a unique and proprietary filtration system that would eliminate not only fine particulate matter but also volatile organic compounds and pathogenic microorganisms like fungal spores, bacteria, and viruses. Graphene is a perfect material for this task. On top of its Nobel-Prize winning physical properties, graphene also possesses extraordinary antimicrobial qualities. There is strong scientific evidence that graphene coatings can deactivate or destroy viruses and bacteria through effective capture followed by their physical and chemical disintegration. Further, the Company’s air filtration materials undergo testing that includes internal and third-party examination.
