The Science Behind ActivePure Technology
ActivePure Technology is based directly upon research NASA did in the 1990s to solve airborne challenges with growing plants. This technology has been consistently developed and expanded upon, and now allows for powerful air purification.
Independent Scientific Testing VerifiesThe Aerus units were able to demonstrate a 99.98% surface kill rate of live SARS-CoV-2 virus samples within 7 hours. This testing was conducted by MRIGlobal, a leading research center in Kansas City using fully FDA-compliant laboratories. In subsequent tests, the ActivePure Technology was pitted against airborne viruses. In an article published December 10, 2020 by the Washington Post, they reported that the Aerus Pure and Clean and Vollara Air and Surface Pro maintained a 99.9% rate of inactivating concentrated airborne SARS-CoV-2 virus in an enclosed setting. And most impressively, it achieved this in under 3 minutes.
These test results are certainly compelling. But for anyone skeptical about claims of an air and surface purification system that has performed this well, which is understandable, the simplest path to alleviating that is illuminating the group behind the testing.
After all, a lab test is only as good as the team and equipment being used.
MRIGlobal has been a leader in contributions to scientific research and engineering for over 75 years. It was originally formed as Midwest Research Institute in 1944, a not-for-profit with the goal of advancing scientific knowledge.
Their work was been continually recognized on a global level. Their teams have performed independent scientific testing for various industries, government entitites, and engineering organizations well beyond only the United States.
As of November 2020, MRIGlobal has initiated over $11 million research projects dealing directly with Covid-19. Needless to say, they’ve been an important participant in progress for everyone in dealing with such an epidemic.
About The University of Texas Medical Laboraties
This was the organization responsible for the more recent round of scientific tests on the ActivePure effectiveness.
They are actually one of only a few bio hazard labs in the country, and have worked alongside the CDC and the military many times to solve complex challenges.
History of ActivePure
Electrolux had been making healthy indoor air products since 1924. Over that time, they served over 50 million businesses and homes alike, establishing a trusted reputation.
Outside of solutions for homeowners, Electrolux provided air filtration solutions to bars, medical offices, schools, government buildings, museums, gyms, grocery stores, and other types of commercial buildings.
That process continued for decades successfully. Then in the early 1990s NASA funded the Wisconsin Center for Space Automation and Robitics to come up with a solution for the ethylene gas that was building up around plants grown in spacecraft environments. That ethylene gas caused plants to wither prematurely, which was holding that concept back from viability. These early developments would become crucial in years to come.
In 1998 Electrolux USA was purchased by Joe Urso and associates, which ultimately became Aerus as we know it today. Aerus has been a successful healthy living company ever since, and has continued developing air purification products since 2001.
In 2009 Aerus invested in ActivePure, a NASA-certified space technology. Through continues improvements, Aerus increased the efficacy of ActivePure and earned global patents.
That improved technology has been inducted into the Space Technology Hall of Fame — one of 75 technologies to do so in the past 30 years.
Aerus is the parent company to Vollara, which is a distribution arm for the ActivePure Technology.
