Proven by science
How do Molekule air purifiers work? Developed over 25 years by research scientists, PECO is an innovative technology that uses free radicals—the same radicals used to destroy cancer cells—to break down pollutants at a molecular level, including viruses, bacteria, mold, ozone, allergens, and chemicals. By combining PECO nanotechnology with HEPA filtration and air quality sensors, Molekule air purifiers can capture particles found in smoke, while detecting and destroying organic pollutants like bacteria, viruses, chemicals, mold, allergens, and more.
*Laboratory testing conducted at University of Nebraska Medical Center. No air purifier can fully prevent transmission of a virus. Molekule recommends use of PPE and following the direction of the CDC and other government authorities.
Under the microscope
PECO destroys pollutants at a microscopic scale, including chemicals 1000x smaller than what the HEPA filter standard tests for. With no ozone byproduct, a Molekule air purifier safely destroys a vast range of indoor air pollutants. As a science company, Molekule conducts extensive testing of its technology through its own labs as well as certified third-party laboratories.
White papers & technology reports
Molekule believes in scientific disclosure. That’s why we make our testing and scientific data public.
VOC Destruction Report
As tested by Intertek, a nationally recognized testing laboratory (NRTL), Molekule’s PECO technology destroys VOCs without re-release, unlike any other technology available. Download
Bacteria, Mold, and Virus Destruction Test Report
Independent testing by Aerosol Research and Engineering (ARE) Laboratories, a nationally recognized testing laboratory (NRTL), reveals that Molekule’s PECO technology successfully destroys mold, bacteria, and viruses.
Ozone Emission Test Report
Scientific testing by Intertek and the University of Minnesota Particle Calibration Laboratory shows that Molekule’s PECO Technology doesn’t produce ozone as a byproduct and actually reduces it in the air.
