Innovative Labs has developed a photo catalytic oxidation (PCO) air purification system to address the concerns of formaldehyde, ozone and volatile organic compound (VOC) pollution. According to the company, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conducted tests of the Sonoma air purifier against 13 other air purification units and excelled, yielding a high single-pass conversion of formaldehyde and other VOCs without emitting ozone. The system works by continuously drawing air into the air purifier, where a strong ultraviolet (UV) light activates a long-lasting titanium dioxide photo catalytic reactor core, breaking down and destroying airborne biological contaminants, odors, pollutants and dangerous VOCs. The result is pure air free from formaldehyde, bacteria and viruses.
