Indoor air pollution is up to 5 times higher than outdoor pollution.
We studied the perfect sustainable combination to make you breathe new and clean air.
PCO technology (photocatalytic oxidation) is a natural phenomenon based on the particular property of semiconductor materials: in our case, we use tungsten trioxide (WO3), a nanomaterial used to coat the ceramic filter.
From a chemical-physical point of view, WO3 has a particular structure that allows it to be activated by the visible band LEDs that illuminate the filter inside Vitesy products.
The use of WO3 instead of TiO2 guarantees the Vitesy technology greater safety (because we don't use UV lights), better performance, and less consumption (less than an LED bulb). In this way, we make our photocatalytic technology sustainable and effective.
The air purification process based on Vitesy's technology is performed by free radicals that are created when tungsten trioxide interacts with oxygen and moisture present in the air, creating a molecular breakdown:
e− + O2 → •O2− Superoxide radical
h+ + OH− → •OH Hydroxyl radical
Billions of these two elements are created in billionths of a second and ensure an effective elimination of pollutants and toxic microorganisms present in the air such as VOCs, viruses, bacteria, odors, particular matter, and nitrogen oxides.
There are many scientific studies that confirm the ability of photocatalysis to destroy microorganisms and viruses.
In order to validate this topic, which is sensitive and often full of disinformation, we decided to carry out a test in the laboratory to verify the antiviral efficacy of our technology on the SARS-CoV-2 virus, responsible for the COVID-19 disease. And the results are great.
We’ve tested our WO3 + visible band LEDs technology so the results are valid for all Vitesy products.
We all know the power of plants to provide oxygen, but perhaps you don't know that plants can eliminate pollutants too.
In fact, harmful substances are retained inside the soil, where thanks to the presence of microorganisms near the roots they are broken down to become nourishment for the plant itself.
Traditional HEPA and activated carbon filters collect contaminants rather than destroy them. Vitesy products uses the photocatalytic technology that turns air pollutants into harmless substances.
Solvents in paint and glues such as toluene can linger in your home for an extended amount of time, but Eteria can destroy them so they aren’t inhaled.
Humans, animals, dust, building materials, furnishings, air conditioners, humidifiers, and outdoor air are the main sources.
You can find formaldehyde in cigarette smoke, paints, dyes, cosmetics, and cooking smoked or fried foods.
Eteria helps you in just a few minutes to remove ammonia from your air, often polluted by cleaning products.
VOCs constitute a wide range of substances dangerous to health that can cause irritation to the eyes, nose, throat, and respiratory problems.
Every year, 20 Million of air filters are wasted, we are here to make a difference
Vitesy filters don’t need to be replaced because contaminants aren’t collected on them. We use the latest generation WO3 nano-coating to cover the filters.
The best part is that you don’t have to buy extra filters every 6 months. You just need to wash them under running water and use them again.
Our products use a visible-band light to activate photocatalysis. As we don't use UV lights we don’t produce ozone which is dangerous for your health.
