"Particulate Matter," also known as PM is made up of a number of components including extremely small particles and liquid droplets. Sized at less than 2.5 micrometers (PM2.5), these particles are said to pose health problems as they can easily enter our lungs.
Good : Minimal impact
Satisfactory : May cause minor breathing discomfort to sensitive people
Moderate : May cause breathing discomfort to people with lung disease, children or elderly
Poor : May cause breathing discomfort to people on prolonged exposure
Very Poor : May cause respiratory illness on prolonged exposure
Severe : Possible respiratory impact even on healthy people
*PM2.5 Levels highlighted above are measured on a specific day during the research phase. PM2.5 Level keeps on changing throughout the year. So, above figures are indicative only.
NANOE-G TECHNICAL EXPLANATION
Data on removal of airborne bacteria was presented by HARVARD SCHOOL of Public Health Researchers at Nano-Symposium at Kyoto University, 2012
The effect after 100 minutes in a 40 m³ test space [about the size of a 10 tatami mat room], not the effect in a space where actually used.
“Performance evaluation of a novel ionizer for air purification applications”, Dr. S. Rudnick et al. Harvard School of Public Health, Environmental Health Nanoscience Lab.
A study of the removal effect of airborne bacteria by using an air-conditioner incorporating nanoe-G was carried out in a large space, and the results were presented at Nano-Symposium jointly held in September 2012 by Harvard University and Kyoto University.
Test methods: Bacteria removal method: Release of nanoe-G ions.
Target: Airborne bacteria, Test results: It is estimated that after three hours of operation the nanoe-G will achieve 2.7 log10 reductions, - 1 log10 reduction more, as compared to without nanoe-G.
