USF: A New Way to Clean the Air

A new air-purifying technology could help. Instead of a filter, the device blows air over a photoactivatable catalyst to create highly reactive chemicals that destroy VOCs, pollen and other allergens, and microbes.

Back in the mid-1990s, Yogi Goswami, a solar energy researcher who directs the Clean Energy Research Center at the University of South Florida, had a personal reason to switch gears and investigate air purification technology. His son Delip, who’s now 35, had severe asthma and allergies as a boy, and conventional air filtration devices did not ease them.
