Innovation is in the air
Next – antibacterial cleaners
Technologies for air quality. Made of corrugated cardboard, is an purifier which has been created to clean up the environment in which we live.
The filters and fans placed inside the cactus break down bacteria, fine dust and pollutants from cigarette smoke thanks to three technologies developed by researchers at the University Politecnico di Milano, some of which are patented.
The first technology consists in a particular treatment of the surface, which allows for an increased capacity of the cellulose fibres of the cardboard to mechanically block bacteria and solid particles. The second is the use of chitosan (a natural antibacterial substance derived from the shell of shellfish), which prevents bacterial colonization. The third technology is the use of titanium dioxide which, thanks to the presence of ultraviolet LED, photocatalyses to oxidize most of the chemical species produced by cigarette smoking and cooking of foods (NOx, VOC, etc..).
It is available in different sizes and is suited to any type of environment, from houses to shops, from hotels to offices, from schools to hospitals. Environmental sustainability, low noise and low consumption are featured in this innovative design.
