Asthma and allergy sufferers have a new way to protect themselves from harmful airborne pollutants. Molekule calls itself the world’s first molecular air purifier. The app-enabled product is now available to the public after four successful rounds of pre-orders.
First announced in 2016, the 23-inch tail Molekule purifier was developed by co-founder and chief scientist Dr. Yogi Goswami who has over 40 years of experience in education and research in the clean energy space. His interest in combating allergens, mold, bacteria, and airborne chemicals grew from watching his son suffer from asthma as a child.
The son, Dilip Goswami, is a Molekule co-founder and the company’s CEO.
Unlike other air purifiers on the market, Molekule has the ability to purify and replace the air in a 600 square foot room and does so without a noisy fan. It connects to home Wi-Fi via an iPhone app and uses machine learning to respond to the individual needs of each household.
Featuring a clean and modern design, Molekule uses something called PECO nanotechnology to get the job done. The company claims this type of technology both captures and destroys pollutants, including those up to 1000x smaller than particulates trapped by traditional HEPA filters.
Take a look:
My interest in Molekule hits close to home as both my mother and younger brother suffer from asthma, while I’ve dealt with seasonal allergies for my entire life.
When I first learned about this product, I immediately wanted to take another look. I’ll do so soon once I receive my review unit.
Among the questions I’d like to answer is whether the device works and if it’s worth the price. I’ll let you know what I think on both points in the coming weeks.
