Molekule, a leader in reinventing air purification, announced a new addition to its line of products in India, the Molekule Air Mini+, which will be available for purchase through authorized resellers on Amazon.in at INR 45,999. Like all of Molekule’s products, the Air Mini+ relies on Molekule’s award-winning Photo Electrochemical Oxidation (PECO) technology, which captures and destroys viruses, bacteria, allergens, mold, and other pollutants that are present in the air. In a recent study with the University of Minnesota, USA, Molekule’s air purification PECO technology was demonstrated to inactivate up to 99.99% of coronavirus strains (porcine & bovine) and H1N1 flu virus.*
Air Mini+ includes the same benefits as Molekule Air Mini, but now with enhanced features, such as a particulate matter sensor, automatic fan speeds via Auto Protect mode, and a vegan leather handle. The Air Mini+ particle sensor detects particulate matter in the air of the room in which it operates and rates the air quality from “Good” to “Very bad,” offering a glance into your indoor air quality. If on Auto Protect mode, Air Mini+ will automatically adjust its fan speed based on pollutants sensed in the air. With these features, it intelligently purifies the air around it in real-time. Consumers can control their Air Mini+ and receive status updates on their air purifier’s filters via the Molekule app, on iOS and Android.
“With the pandemic leaving many of us confined to the four walls of our homes, it is more important than ever to use effective air purification technology that not only filters or collects, but also destroys viruses, bacteria, and other pollutants that exist in the air we breathe,” says Jaya Rao, CEO and Co-Founder of Molekule. “Molekule’s mission is to deliver clean air to everyone, everywhere, and the launch of our second product, Air Mini+, in India is another step in that direction. We have a deep commitment to India and we will continue to grow our presence in the country to ensure that the people of India have access to clean, safe air.”
Molekule Air Mini+ is compact and fits comfortably in most places, which makes it easy to place next to potential sources of airborne pollutants. It is 30 cm high x 20 cm wide and weighs 3.3 kgs. It is designed for rooms up to 23 sq meters and is an ideal choice for apartments, bedrooms, and home offices. The purifier has 5 different fan speeds that can be adjusted as required. The energy consumption is between 20-55 watts, and the noise level varies between 39-62dBA, pending fan speed.
Molekule’s proprietary PECO technology is developed by the award-winning Dr. D. Yogi Goswami, a Non-Resident Indian (NRI), a distinguished professor, and world-renowned solar scientist. Based on more than 25 years of research and development, PECO (Photo Electrochemical Oxidation) technology is a fundamentally new approach using photocatalysis and oxidation that destroys the widest range of pollutants, including VOCs, mold, bacteria, viruses, and allergens, compared to traditional air purifiers. Molekule air purifiers have PECO-Filters coated in a proprietary catalyst, which, when activated by UV-A light, releases hydroxyl radicals that safely and efficiently break the molecular bonds of viruses, bacteria, mold, allergen, odors, pollen, dander, and more.
Molekule’s Senior Director of Research and Development, Jaspreet Dhau, said, “India is still in the midst of an unprecedented spike in COVID-19 cases, a virus that can be transmitted from person to person by exposure to aerosolized respiratory droplets. As a result, adequate indoor air purification and ventilation are as important as ever.”
Molekule’s PECO technology is whisper-quiet, certified ozone-free, and has a strong proven history of using oxidation to destroy airborne pollutants at the molecular level. Several independent air quality testing laboratories and internal testing have validated the effectiveness of Molekule’s proprietary PECO technology, backed by testing papers available on Molekule’s India website.
