Molekule Air Purifier Destroys Indoor Air Pollution With UV Rays

By Nicole Caldwell

Most people spend 90 percent of their time indoors. That’s especially troubling when you learn indoor air can be two to five times as polluted as the air outside. Air pollution ranks among the top-five environmental risks to public health, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. And that makes air purifiers much more than luxury items. But while most purifiers filter and trap undesirable air particles, a new product on the market destroys them.

It took a solar engineer to figure out a new way to combat air pollution. 

Dr. Yogi Goswami, an engineering professor at the University of South Florida, had by 1995 lent his name to international attention for his extensive work and ingenuity with solar energy. But his resume took a step in a different direction when Goswami sought to end his son’s debilitating asthma symptoms. While exploring possible solutions, the renowned engineer discovered many of the air filters and purifiers on the market simply trapped harmful air particles.
