Saint-Gobain Quartz has developped Quartzel® PCO , a photocatalytic media for Air Purification.
Much has been presented on health related illnesses caused by air pollutants (allergic sensitizing, asthma, repiratory infections, carcinogenic effects...)
These air pollutants whether of natural or human origin are usually classified in physical pollutants (dust and particles), chemical or gas pollutants (NOx, SOx, VOC, Odors...) and microbiological pollutants (bacteria, molds, virus)
Thanks to its active principle, Quartzel® PCO presents a broad spectrum of action on the air pollutants. It is an excellent complement of the traditional dust filters since it allows :
Treatment of a broad range of gaseous pollutants
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC)
- Odors (sulfide, nitrogened compounds and certain VOCs)
- Secondary pollutants such as ozone
Abatement of the microbiological pollutants of the air
It finds its main applications in Indoor Air Quality Improvement (building , transportation) and decrease of professional exposure to chemical nuisances .
