How does Peco technology compare with carbon? Both of these technologies are implemented into air purifying systems that are designed to help improve the air quality in your personal environment. Air quality, specifically indoor air quality has become a major concern as the EPA has conducted studies and research backing the link between indoor air quality and certain health conditions. These conditions can range from allergies, asthma, and other respiratory illnesses. Many people have turned to air purification systems as a means to improve their air quality and better improve their overall health. When deciding on which air purifier is the best fit for you and will work most effectively having a comparison on the different technologies can be essential in picking the best air purifier system.

Peco vs Carbon Technology

Carbon technology is used in air purification systems as a way to absorb chemicals and toxins in the environment. Carbon will adsorb certain airborne chemicals which are called volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Carbon filters, as described by the EPA, are specific to one or a limited number of gaseous pollutants, and thus will not reduce VOCs for which they are not designed to work against. Therefore, though carbon filters are able to capture some VOCs initially, they will often re-emit these same chemicals back into the environment.

Peco is the technology used in the Molekule air purifier system, that was developed by research scientists for nearly over two decades. This technology works when light shines on a specifically designed nanoparticle coated filter. The light on the surface of the filter creates a reaction that is able to completely oxidize pollutants in the air. This technology, however, like carbon re-releases byproducts back into the environment that could be dangerous to the environment and those people exposed. Although, Molekule claims the free radicals oxidize the pollutants at the surface of the filter, only converting them into harmless elements like water and carbon dioxide, but is that really the case?

Peco Technology Testing Against EnviroKlenz Technology

EnviroKlenz is a highly efficient “adsorptive neutralizers” for chemicals that uses a safe earth mineral technology. This adsorptive neutralization technology works effectively at not only neutralizing chemicals and odors but actually neutralizing and breaking it down at the source. Three tests conducted show the efficacy of both the Peco technology and the EnviroKlenz technology against different chemical agents. The results shown below represent the efficiency of the technology, with the EnviroKlenz technology shown in blue and the Molekule shown in orange.
