We do not focus only on air purification but also develop water purification devices that are based on a similar technology.
How it works
Photocatalysis is an advanced oxidation process in which organic compounds can be degraded during photocatalytic reaction down to carbon dioxide and water.
The mineralization products of complex molecules are also innocuous inorganic ions (Cl–, SO42-, NO3–).
Oxidation occurs through reactions with highly reactive species (primarily hydroxyl radicals OH•), which are generated by illumination of a photocatalyst.
Photocatalytic technology has many advantages over conventional technologies and other emerging technologies. The most important advantage is that pollutants are degraded, without the use of potentially hazardous oxidants, rather than simply transferring pollutants to another phase.
Photocatalysis can play a crucial role in indoor air treatment and is therefore already part of different air purifiers. Our greatest competitive advantage in comparison with existing air purifiers is that our active material is rigidly attached to support. Hence, no nanoparticles are released into the air during purification.
WHY CHOOSE US?
We are very experienced in prototyping and are able to design, assemble and test different shapes and sizes of photo(electro)catalytic modules. We can easily scale-up our devices and tailor them to our customers’ needs. Our modules are cost-effective and we use green processes to synthesize our nanomaterial and build our devices.
Since we are part of JSI, we have all the equipment needed for testing photocatalytic devices’ efficiency and their safety. We are one of few that can perform certified measurements of nanoparticles presence in air which also gives us additional competitive advantage.
WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Companies willing to integrate our modules in their appliances or purification systems
Industry with specific problems we can help solve with our technology
Industrial or scientific partners for collaboration on research projects
An early stage investment partners able to contribute in the stage of finding the product/market fit
Our team is currently employed at Jožef Stefan Institute, Ljubljana where our technology is being developed for the last 6 years. We are driven by the common purpose of commercializing our technology and collaborate with different industrial partners looking for new solutions for air and water treatment.
