Air purifiers normally use HEPA filters and fans to help catch particles and prevent them from taking over the air in a room, but the new Molekule takes air purification to the molecular level.
Molekule uses Photo Electrochemical Oxidation technology (PECO), which is a allergen and pollutant removal system that uses a light and a nano-coated filter to create a catalytic oxidation reaction. This literally breaks down allergen compounds to a molecular level and destroys them.
The resulting reaction converts allergens, bacteria, mold, viruses, and VOCs into harmless levels of carbon dioxide, water, and trace minerals. Through the use of PECO technology, the Molekule is rated to filter indoor rooms down to 0.1 nanometers, which is a level 1,000 times smaller than traditional HEPA air filtration systems.
Molekule also boasts an eye-catching matte-minimalist design and can be controlled via an app. It is currently available for pre-order for $499.
