Forbes talks about Aerus ActivePure® Technology
The solution lies in bringing the chemistry from catalytic action to the point where microorganisms and offensive particles lurk. A leading filter company, Aerus, has invested over $ 10 million in the acquisition and development of space technologies to create practical Earth-based systems that can do just that. Their Active Pure Technology system (a variant of radiant catalytic ionization) uses ambient humidity in the air to release hydroxyls and hydrogen peroxide from the PCO process into the air. Research shows that in addition to breaking down the organic substances present in the air, these molecules are deposited on the surfaces of the room where they effectively neutralize germs. "
Recognizing Aerus' significant investment in commercializing this NASA technology, the Space Foundation recently inducted the company and its founder into the Space Technology Hall of Fame, a great tool to highlight the contribution space makes to our economy. It reminds us that Aerus and hundreds of other companies make their money using space technology and provide a lot of manufacturing jobs in the US sales and distribution process. Aerus founder Joe Urso noted, "We are very fortunate to live in an age where space age technology and innovation have such dramatic implications for us here on Earth." Indeed, we are! read more
