Why Aren’t We Talking About Destroying COVID in Indoor Air?
An Open Letter on How to Open America
[...] By contrast, ventilation does not seek out the virus. Other systems are passive, slow, trap pathogens but don’t destroy them. Many are so dangerous, people can’t even be in the room. By contrast, our technology blasts out sub-microscopic particles that attack viruses and bacteria and destroy them in real time.2 Our system is safe for people and pets, and it works continuously.
*It evolved from the NASA space program and is now used by hospitals, schools, offices, restaurants, and other businesses, and in hundreds of thousands of homes.
The Washington Post article says:
NASA developed similar technology referred to as an ethylene “scrubber” in the mid-1990s to help with growing plants. The device would draw in ethylene, a gas emitted by plants that speeds up decay, and convert it into water and carbon dioxide, which help plants grow.
In 2017, the space agency acknowledged the filtration company’s efforts to introduce the technology to people’s homes.
- Did NASA ethylene scrubbers "blast out submicron particles" which attack viruses and bacteria?
- Where did NASA leave this technology off and ActivePure pick it up? Have there been any uses or tests of this surface-based oxidation process for viruses, bacteria, organic molecules or anything else in space? Space stations, suits, etc...
Background from this press release NASA-Based ActivePure Technology® Rapidly Eliminates 99.9% of Airborne SARS-CoV-2 Virus in FDA-Compliant Military Lab Tests:
ActivePure is a patented scientific process that dispatches super-charged, sub-microscopic particles at tremendous speed. These particles are created by reactions between ambient water and oxygen molecules, a patented matrix coating, and a specific wavelength of UVC light. The particles collide with viruses, bacteria, and air pollutants and immediately turn them into harmless elements.
