A North Haven clean energy technology company was awarded a grant to develop a regenerable indoor air filter on Monday.
Precision Combustion Inc. (PCI) received the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Small Business Innovation Research Phase I Grant for gaseous pollutant removal to ensure a healthy and comfortable indoor environment.
PCI's regenerable air filter removes gaseous pollutants from indoor air while reducing the requirement for outdoor air and lowering building operating costs.
Most modern buildings maintain indoor air using particulate filters and makeup air. However while makeup air is the primary approach in controlling gaseous pollutants, it may be ineffective if the outdoor air is polluted.
