Indoor air quality has recently become a major topic of concern as the impact of toxins and chemicals in our air could have lasting effects on human health. American’s spend an estimated 90 percent of their time indoors, therefore ensuring that your indoor air is clean and free of chemicals and toxins can not only help your environment but improve the overall health of those exposed. Indoor air quality was ranked by the EPA as one of the top five environmental risks to public health. Thus, the importance of having an air purifier in your personal environment to aid in the removal of hazardous toxins and chemicals can promote improved air quality and overall health.

When deciding on the best air purification system for your home, having comparison information on the different top brands and their effectiveness can help you in ensuring you select the ideal air purifier that will work against a broad spectrum of chemicals and odors. Among the top air purifying systems, the EnviroKlenz Mobile Air System and the Molekule, have both been analyzed as their technologies were compared in an effort to indicate the efficacy of both technologies at neutralizing chemical compounds in the air. Also, the carbon technology is another air purifier technology that should be considered when looking at air purifiers, especially when considering how does Peco technology compare with carbon. Nevertheless, the Peco technology and EnviroKlenz technology are two air purification systems that use different competing patented technologies detailed below.

The Molekule utilizes a patented technology called PECO (Photo Electrochemical Oxidation). What is Peco technology? It is a technology that uses free radicals to oxidize pollutants. This technology was developed over two decades by research scientists and is said to work at the molecular level to eliminate indoor air pollution, while also claiming to be able to destroy pollutants 1000 times smaller than traditional HEPA filters. The Peco technology originally comes from the claimed less efficient technology called PCO. What are the differences between Peco and PCO? Peco is the same technology as PCO, just more efficient and effective at eliminating pollutants according to researchers. Does Peco Technology Work? The manufacturer of the Molekule claims that the technology and product have been extensively tested by third-party laboratories, including the University of Minnesota and the University of South Florida, as a few studies are posted on the Molekule website. Peco technology, however, has some flaws and has been scrutinized by customers who have had less than stellar experiences with the Molekule system. One main concern is the question, ‘is Peco technology safe’?

The EnviroKlenz Mobile Air System combines Advanced EnviroKlenz technology for toxic and noxious chemical and odor removal with HEPA filtration to remove airborne dust, particulates, and allergens. The EnviroKlenz earth mineral technology has a high surface area that gives ample active sites to contact the chemical pollutant, but they additionally can break down chemicals through a variety of chemicals mechanisms and pathways, safely.

EnviroKlenz vs Molekule Comparison Testing Results

The EnviroKlenz and Molekule were tested in an environmental chamber against a variety of chemical compounds. In the graphs presented, the EnviroKlenz Air System’s effectiveness is represented by the blue line and the Molekule by the orange. These are the results of our findings.

The graph above illustrates the speed that which the EnviroKlenz Mobile Air System can neutralize an acid gas from the air. The environmental chamber had an initial target of 15 ppm (parts-per-million) of hydrogen sulfide released and stabilized. Each device was turned on and allowed to eliminate the chemical. Within minutes (less than 10 minutes) the EnviroKlenz Air System cleared the air as illustrated by the sharp drop in relative concentration, while the Molekule struggled to reduce the concentration by even half, and only achieved a 50% reduction after over 90 minutes of operation.

In the second graph (located above), the two devices were challenged with formaldehyde, a common indoor air pollutant. The target starting ppm range for these tests was 6 ppm. The EnviroKlenz Air System steadily reduced the concentration by 50% in 45 minutes, while the Molekule only achieved around a 20% reduction at 2 hours.

In the third graph (located above), the two devices were challenged with NH3. Over the course of the 60-minute test, the EnviroKlenz system was able to completely neutralize the chemical compounds, while the Molekule had no detectable impact on concentration of the compound in the air.

How Does EnviroKlenz Work?

We believe the best methods, products, and technologies should offer the ability to chemically dismantle a wide range of undesirable chemical compounds in addition to the particulates. Chemical pollution can be comprised of a wide range of chemicals that are not trapped or broken down by traditional particulate filtration technology. The “Adsorptive Neutralization” capabilities of EnviroKlenz breakdown chemicals through multiple chemical pathways. Best of all, it does this without releasing byproducts or fragrances to the environment.
