Air Sterilization Technology
Firefly Wellness Concepts specializes in using cutting edge air sterilization technology to promote the regeneration of the lungs and increase oxygen flow. We use ionization for creating ozone, also called activated oxygen.
Ionization is a technique by which charged particles called ions travel out into the environment, charging the unwanted particulate matter in the air, which then attracts oppositely-charged particles and allows them to gain sufficient mass to be filtered or fall to the ground. Ozone or O3 contains three atoms of oxygen rather than the two atoms, which we normally breathe. It is the second most powerful sterilant in the world and can be used to destroy bacteria, air-borne viruses and odours.
Ultraviolet (UV) light contributes to creating ozone. Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO) technology generates two key purifying technologies. This replicates nature’s purifying process of using ultraviolet energy to activate a multi-metal catalyst and convert water vapour into peroxide and hydroxyls.
These powerful oxidizers penetrate the virus-cell wall and inactivate the microbe through the process of cell lysing, changing the molecular structure and rendering the virus harmless. The result is the destruction of odours, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), mould, bacteria, and viruses.
