Molekule is very pleased to announce our latest innovation in the science of clean air, a new filter that combines the destroying power of PECO with the particle capturing efficiency of HEPA. Our new PECO-HEPA Tri-Power filter captures more than 99.97% of particles 0.3 microns
Seasonal allergies affect up to 30% of the global population, making allergy symptoms extremely common among adults and children. A seasonal allergy develops when your immune system overreacts to something in your environment, whether it's burning bush in the fall or grass pollen in the

It takes a lot of plants to clean the air.
A NASA study in 1989 found some interesting results when exposing plants to the air pollution chemicals known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs). It seemed that the plants in combination with the soil and soil microbes
No. They do not remove carbon dioxide (CO2). Almost all air purifiers are designed to capture some combination of particles and toxic gasses, but CO2 can’t be captured by the same filters that capture other gaseous air pollution. Only ventilation removes CO2.
It’s important to at
