Molekule’s technology does not capture pollutants in a filter membrane, like HEPA. Therefore, Molekule technology is not limited by particle size. Conversely, HEPA filters cannot capture small pollutants and bigger particulates like mold and bacteria can grow on the filter surface and disperse back into the air.
Molekule’s technology, also called PECO, works by shining light on a filter membrane coated with nanoparticles. The light activates a chemical reaction on the surface of the filter, which breaks down pollutants of any size that pass through the filter.
As a consequence, our technology does not rely on the size of pollutants destroy them from the air.
