Indoor Air Quality

Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) is developing air cleaning applications focused on control of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), CO2, Sulfur and other air pollutants. PCI’s nanostructured and catalytic air filters are modeled to achieve more reliable levels of indoor air quality while lowering energy use, and providing operating and capital cost savings.

PCI’s oxidation, adsorption, and chemical reaction technologies are being developed for a variety of indoor air quality applications. These technologies, funded by DOE, EPA, NASA, and others, provide high value in a compact, lightweight, and regenerable package.

Applications include:

  • Commercial Buildings
  • Residential Buildings
  • Aircraft
  • Spacecraft
  • Trains

Our technologies can be tailored to capture a variety of targeted chemical compounds, including, CO2, ammonia, VOCs (e.g., formaldehyde, benzene), and other pollutants from industrial processes. PCI’s strategy of directly removing pollutants from indoor air decreases the need for makeup air and associated air treatment costs for heating, cooling, and humidity control. Our building air clean-up technologies furthermore can utilize Demand Control Ventilation (DCV) to offer high quality indoor air at a reduced cost.

Air cleaner performance benefits

Microlith® catalytic air cleaners offer several performance benefits over alternative technologies.

  • Ultra-compact size and low weight
  • Direct electrical heating of the conductive substrate utilizing low power
  • High energy and conversion efficiency
  • Reduced maintenance and power requirements
  • Improved durability for long term reliable operation

The technology has been developed in two embodiments, a Trace Contaminant Oxidizer for VOC's and CO and a Trace Contaminant Adsorber for CO2 and other Spacecraft Maximum Allowable Concentration (SMAC) compounds.
