Air pollution stems from a variety of sources, both natural and man-made. To increase public awareness, news reports of the health effects of exposure to air pollution has increased in recent years—as a result, we now have a good understanding of where most air pollution
... Individual molecules of gaseous substances cannot be detected by a particle counter, they are just too small to trigger the detector. So while the particle-counting approach certainly tells us something about the quality of the air, it is definitely not the whole story.
True to our clean air mission, Molekule employees donated air purifiers to those affected by the Kincade Fire.

When it comes to buying an air purifier, there is a lot to consider: from reviews by publishing sites and real customers, to how it's been tested. The current industry approach to testing has been about the same for the past 40 years,
If you have allergies and/or asthma, should you be concerned about wildfire smoke?
While it is evident that the only way to fully do away with unwanted secondhand smoke exposure is by completely banning smoking in an indoor space, using an air purifier might at least help mitigate the adverse health effects and reduce the unpleasant odor.
Molekule’s PECO tech destroys common VOCs that come from wildfire smoke, as shown by R&D testing. Conversely, typical HEPA filters were not designed for VOC air pollutants.
The characteristics of ozone that make it potentially harmful also make it possible to be filtered out of the air with another method: activated carbon. Ozone is reactive because the third oxygen atom attaches to other molecules very easily, with a tendency to “break off”
Here at Molekule, we talk about air quality a lot. We research, think about and write about air quality a lot too. Sometimes you have to get back to basics and explore the fundamental problem of poor air quality. In order to understand what good
As a science-based company, Molekule has been testing assumptions about air pollution using scientific principles with a mission to push the industry forward.
