pollutants being destroyed by Molekule PECO filter element

PECO technology by Molekule—Destroys SARS-CoV-2 & more.

Proven by science

How do Molekule air purifiers work? Developed over 25 years by research scientists, PECO is an innovative technology that uses free radicals—the same radicals used to destroy cancer cells—to break down pollutants at a molecular level, including viruses, bacteria, mold, ozone, allergens, and chemicals. By combining PECO nanotechnology with high-efficiency filtration and air quality sensors, Molekule air purifiers can capture particles found in smoke, while detecting and destroying pollutants 1000 times smaller than the standard filters must meet to qualify as HEPA.

Molekule’s PECO air filter destroys over 99% of SARS-CoV-2 in 1 hour.

New research shows Molekule Air Mini removed 99.98% of the SARS-CoV-2 virus from the air in a one-time release multiple pass test in a small chamber, PECO destroyed over 99% in a filter swatch level test in under one hour.*

These results build on past research with viral capture and destruction and demonstrate how PECO adds a layer of protection against airborne viruses.

Under the microscope

PECO destroys pollutants at a microscopic scale, including chemicals 1000x smaller than what the HEPA filter standard tests for. With no ozone byproduct, a Molekule air purifier safely destroys a vast range of indoor air pollutants. As a science company, Molekule conducts extensive testing of its technology through its own labs as well as certified third-party laboratories.

White papers & technology reports

Molekule believes in scientific disclosure. That’s why we make our testing and scientific data public.

  • VOC Destruction Report

    As tested by Intertek, a nationally recognized testing laboratory (NRTL), Molekule’s PECO technology destroys VOCs without re-release, unlike any other technology available. Download

  • Ozone Emission Test Report

    Scientific testing by Intertek and the University of Minnesota Particle Calibration Laboratory shows that Molekule’s PECO Technology doesn’t produce ozone as a byproduct and actually reduces it in the air. Download
