Covid-19 Defense - How Does Photocatalysis Work?

Photocatalysis is a well-known physical principle that provides powerful and everlasting disinfection. The titanium dioxide, (the catalyst) is not consumed in the reaction. The visible and ultraviolet energy spectrum of normal daylight activates the titanium dioxide nanocrystals (TiO2) on the surface producing a photocatalytic effect. The surface of our product is activated by light with  a wavelength under 420 nm (Visible and UV), the minimal amount required for safe, effective activation is 0.2W/m2. The product firmly adheres to the surface with 3-5 MPa. No pollutants or any particles are released into the environment.This means that the titanium dioxide nanocrystals absorb the UV light energy, producing free electrons and electron holes. The direct interaction of electrons and electron holes with molecules...

Offices / Hotels

Healthy Public Buildings / Offices / Hotels Indoor Air Quality is essential to enhance productivity, decrease absenteeism, increases your building’s value and reduces liability. Sick Building Syndrome A significant amount of the pollutants are also the interiors of modern buildings, which are packed with a number of plastics and other artificially prepared materials, from which a variety of health-threatening substances are released into the air. The effort to conserve heat or cool our environments led to the creation of air-conditioned buildings (HVAC systems) with closed air circulation, where these substances accumulate to an increasing extent.  This negatively affects the health of people who live or work in such buildings.  This phenomenon is termed syndrome of unhealthy buildings or “Sick Building Syndrome”....

Schools and Universities

MACOMA FN Nano Photocatalytic Air Disinfection/Purification System generates healthy air in schools and nurseries reducing illnesses. Students are at greater risk because of the hours spent in school facilities and because children are often susceptible to pollutants. The health and comfort of students and teachers are among the many factors that contribute to learning and productivity in the classroom, which in turn affect performance and achievement. MACOMA FN Nano Photocatalytic Air Disinfection System improve the indoor environment and reduce morbidity in pre-school facilities and schools. Protection against dangerous substances indoors Protect children and preschool staff from hazardous substances such as cleaning chemicals, fumes from particleboard and plastic materials,  and toxins produced by bacteria housed in air conditioning systems. MACOMA FN Nano Photocatalytic Air Disinfection System cleans...

MACOMA FN Nano Air Disinfection/Purification pro-longs the life of flowers, fruit, vegetables, and allows plants to thrive! Ethylene, is often referred to as the ‘death’ or ‘ripening hormone’ and plays a regulatory role in many processes of plant growth, development and eventually death. Fruits, vegetables and flowers contain receptors which serve as bonding sites to absorb free atmospheric ethylene molecules. Some of the effects of ethylene on flowers include: Bud and leaf abscission ( falling off) Leaf yellowing, transparency Loss of deep color Flower or petal drop Irregular bud opening Premature death The CDC estimates 48 million people get sick from foodborne diseases each year. The CDC states that the spread of germs from the hands of food workers to food...
