Air Scrubber Plus with ActivePure technology is the only IAQ product featured in this year's Spinoff magazine, a publication of NASA. ActivePure is the only technology of its kind designated by the Space Foundation as Certified Space Technology.
The advancement of NASA technology developed in the 1990s for use on the Space Shuttle Columbia and on the International Space Station to the present day uses in the private sector was highlighted in the 2015 edition of Spinoff, an annual NASA publication highlighting products that underwent a similar evolution.
Air Scrubber Plus is the only environmental technology that is proven to reduce contaminants in the air and surfaces of the home. Thanks to the product's proven track record (in studies conducted by the University of Cincinnati Center for Health-Related Aerosol Studies and Kansas State University), Air Scrubber Plus is poised to bring its groundbreaking technology to homes, hospitals, schools, and offices across the country.
"We are thrilled that Air Scrubber Plus was included in the 2015 issue of NASA's Spinoff publication," said Tom Lozano, Executive Director of Air Scrubber Plus. "The progression of the technology originally developed to slow down the process of aging plants in space missions is now used for the benefit of those who are concerned about allergens and contaminants in their homes, schools, hospitals and work spaces."
Air Scrubber Plus can be incorporated into virtually any indoor heating and cooling system by a qualified HVAC specialist. Once installed, users of Air Scrubber Plus report a noticeable improvement in air quality and cleaner surfaces. Up to 99 percent of contaminants on kitchen counters, toilet seats, door handles and any other surface are reduced. Additionally, dust, allergens, mildew and odor-causing bacteria are proven to be significantly reduced from the indoor environment.
Air Scrubber Plus works via a combination of UV light, oxygen and water molecules reacting together and passing through the honeycomb cell coated with a proprietary formulation of non-nano titanium dioxide and other highly reactive metals. This Advanced Oxidation Process produces superoxide ions, hydroxyls and hydrogen peroxide, which in turn clean the air and surfaces in the indoor environment.
The ActivePure technology found in Air Scrubber Plus underwent rigorous testing at Kansas State University. A team of researchers sought to determine the technology's efficacy. They found that the technology was reducing up to 99% of contaminants found on surfaces. The study was conducted on stainless steel surfaces in a controlled airflow cabinet.
A second study, conducted at the University of Cincinnati Center for Health-Related Aerosol Studies, validated the effectiveness of ActivePure technology's air purification technique of combining aerosol and bioaerosol control mechanisms of unipolar emission and photocatalytic oxidation at controlling the contaminants.
"The NASA space program is arguably the greatest scientific adventure that mankind has ever embarked on. It has captured our imaginations and made us proud to be Americans. I am delighted that Air Scrubber Plus is part of that legacy," said Lozano. Air Scrubber Plus, with ActivePure technology, cleans, freshens and purifies the air using specialized germicidal UV light waves along with a proprietary catalytic process that creates enviroscrubbing molecules of oxygen and hydrogen.
Air Scrubber Plus with ActivePure technology is an advancement of technology originally developed in cooperation with NASA for use in the International Space Station, and ActivePure technology is recognized as the exclusive Certified Space Technology by the Space Foundation in its category.
