Plasma-Driven Catalysis (PDC) Air Purification


NAMI has developed a plasma-driven catalysis (PDC) air purification technology with downstream disinfection effect.

  • Plasma-Driven Catalysis (PDC) Air Purification
Commercialisation opportunities
Non-exclusive licensing
Problem addressed

Unlike traditional plasma technology that generates many harmful by-products, NAMI's air purification technology based on plasma-driven catalysis (PDC) features high-energy efficiencies without harmful by-products, yet with downstream disinfection effect.

  • This air cleaning technology enables deep purification of whole range of toxic compositions into CO2 and H2O in heavily polluted environments, being higher efficient than other air purification technology using only plasma or photocatalyst.
Key impact
  • Effective and efficient removal of air contaminants such as VOCs, NOx, odor, bacteria and virus
  • Large airflow with downstream disinfection effect and no harmful by-product
  • Integration with HVAC and AHU system
  • Anti-mold, pest repellent and improve seed germination
  • Offices, smoking rooms and karaoke
  • Hospitals and washrooms
  • Food processing factories and restaurants
  • Agriculture
