Leading aerosol researchers have called for the threat of indoor transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus to be finally taken more seriously. In apartments, offices, classrooms, residential complexes and care facilities, conditions like outdoors would have to be created through frequent ventilation; Room air purifiers and filters would have to be used where people stay longer in closed rooms. At the beginning of 2021, Airbion presented a technology for air purification with which bacteria and viruses in the room air can be killed by 99.9 percent. Airbion devices have been on the market under the name “Airbion One” since February. They work on the basis of a new type of technology called “VAPUR”, which uses ultrasound aggregation, UV-C light and ultra-heating to kill viruses. The devices work completely without the conventional filters and without the release of biocides, they are low-noise and environmentally friendly.
It has been known since the beginning of the pandemic that the risk of SARS-CoV-2 being transmitted indoors is particularly high. It is also known that regular intermittent and cross ventilation alone is not enough. The aerosol researchers are therefore calling for room air purifiers and filters to be installed wherever people have to stay in closed rooms for a longer period of time. “The statement by the Gesellschaft für Aerosolforschung eV confirms our conviction that air purification devices must make a key contribution to fighting pandemics in this situation,” says Eduard Schubert, CEO of Airbion. “Because only efficient air purification technology can reduce the concentration of aerosols and thus of fine dust, viruses and bacteria to an absolute minimum and thus protect people from contamination in the interior.”
With the Airbion One, Airbion GmbH has launched an air purification device that is based on a new technological development by the German graduate chemist Prof. Dr. Gregor Luthe is based. The VAPUR technology developed and patented by Luthe uses the scientifically recognized effect of ultrasonic wave aggregation to inactivate viruses and bacteria. In addition, UV-C light above 270 nm is used to heat viruses and bacteria; no ozone is released at this wavelength. The device then releases the completely treated air back into the room. “International studies have confirmed that VAPUR can kill viruses and bacteria in the air by 99.9 percent,” explains Eduard Schubert, CEO of Airbion. “We are also able to do this in a particularly environmentally friendly way, as our product works without filters, without contamination and without emissions.”
The Airbion One air purifier is a tabletop device and measures 17 x 17 x 17 cm. It fits into any room and can clean up to 90 cubic meters of air within an hour. The Airbion One costs EUR 1,098.00 including VAT. and can be ordered via the online shop www.airbion.com or by telephone. Attractive leasing conditions are available.
