Re-evaluate the existing policy on indoor air

Whether it is the current pandemic or a future one, we always have to control airborne contamination in a sustainable way.

When winter arrives, we will have to rethink certain measures. Act now and lead the informed citizen to your real estate.

A safe environment and the well-being of people will be top priority.

The TakeAir experience always consists of the combination of our Sea-Aeration and BioRemediation units for optimal performance.

Red Marine Algae: the strength behind Sea-Aeration

Studies show the antiviral capacities of Red Marine Algae. They immobilize and inactivate viral pathogens, such as SARS-CoV-2 and Influenza.

The unique chemical structure of the Sulfated Polysaccharides in Red Marine Algae has shown promise as a therapeutic agent for respiratory weaknesses.

Benefits of Red Marine Algae:

  • Antiviral activity against airborne viruses such as SARS-CoV-2 and influenza
  • No unwanted particles grown on the filters
  • Harmless to human health

A carefully engineered bio-compound made of red marine algae is used in the Sea-Aeration process to safely capture and neutralize harmful pathogens.

WHO (2021) recognizes the antiviral properties of Sulfated Polysaccharides. It is considered useful in the fight against COVID-19.

Ammonia Oxidising Bacteria: the strength behind BioRemediation

For the BioRemediation process, we use chemolithotrophic microorganisms, represented by ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB). This means that these microorganisms get energy and nutrients from inorganic substrates such as oxygen, carbon dioxide and ammonia.

Benefits of AOB organisms.

  • Purifies the air by decreasing the formation of PM2.5
  • AOB bacterium catalyses ammonia to nitrite using CO2
  • Supports immune system responses
  • Protects us from invasive pathogens
  • Safeguards balanced skin microflora
  • Increases microbial biodiversity in the environment
  • Decontaminates air by removing toxic ammonia

AOB's are the core active organisms in the BioRemediation process. With the help of these organisms, we have a regenerative design in restoring the air quality (targeting PM2.5 & CO2) and strengthening the health of the inhabitant with microbial diversity.

A stable and varied indoor biome creates a living environment in which the fine-meshed mechanism of our immune system is at ease.

Main achievements

  • High capturing capacity: up to 99 %
  • A fast die-off of airborne viruses: log 3 decreases
  • No bacterial growth on the filter
  • No detachment from the treated filters
  • Existing fans and motors will remain in use
  • No structural modification to air ducts
