High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters collect particulate matter. Think of a HEPA filter as a mesh of tangled fibers. Because air flows through the fibers and traps large particles, the filter’s efficacy is dependent on the size of the particles.
Independent tests at the University of Minnesota Particle Calibration Laboratory show that Molekule’s Photo Electrochemical Oxidation (PECO) technology destroys VOCs quickly. PECO is the only technology that destroys a broad spectrum of pollutants, regardless of size, that pass through the filter. The PECO filter, triggered by light, produces free radicals that break down the molecular structure of any organic compound in a single pass.
