Volatile Organic Compound removal from indoor air environments by an integrated photocatalytic/filtration system

This project seeks to develop an integrated photocatalytic filtration unit for improving air quality in indoor environments, with an emphasis on aircraft cabins.

This project seeks to develop an integrated photocatalytic filtration unit for improving air quality in indoor environments, with an emphasis on aircraft cabins. The integrated unit will modify current aircraft filtration uunits such that they are capable of removing airborne contaminants while retaining their particle filtration properties.

The integrated unit will modify current aircraft filtration uunits such that they are capable of removing airborne contaminants while retaining their particle filtration properties. The technology will overcome crucial issues pertaining to photocatalyst deactivation and harmful byproduct generation often encounteretd during photocatalytic air pollution control by developing innovative photocatalyst particles which will alleviate these problems. Air quality control is a highly significant issue, evident in many built environments, and requires prompt addressing.
