In September 2021, the World Health Organization (WHO) updated its Global Air Quality Guidelines for the first time since 2005, stating that 91 percent of the global population is exposed to air that exceeds the maximum permissible levels of ingestible pollution. Chronic respiratory disorders like asthma have often been linked to Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. Prolonged exposure to certain contaminants can also lead to life-threatening diseases, including heart and lung disease and cancer. In addition, the pandemic has triggered people’s awareness of the effects of airborne toxins on their respiratory health. Owing to these circumstances, business leaders around the globe are looking for effective solutions that can help them improve IAQ. Enter Genesis Air.
Since its establishment in 2003, Genesis Air has utilized state-of-the-art technology to break down hydrocarbons and kill bioaerosols. “The Genesis Air technology inactivated airborne SARS-CoV-2 to undetectable levels. The results show that, when accounting for the LLOQ, the percent reduction in virus achieved with the fully operational unit (Unit B while on) was ≥99.96%; however, since no virus was detected after using the experimental unit, the true percent reduction could have been greater,” says William S. Lawrence, Ph.D., PI, UTMB.
Over the years, Genesis Air has achieved outstanding results by using uniquely designed Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO) panels. The Genesis Air Photocatalyst™ (GAP) revolutionary (CenterPointTM) technology helps reduce the number of viable airborne biologics and breaks down Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC.) The cells are captured using standard filtration to protect the catalyst, and the titanium dioxide photocatalyst used in Genesis Air’s products is superior and more effective than most antibacterial agents currently in use. “What sets us apart from other market players is that our products have been third party tested in the lab with SARS-CoV-2 active virus samples,” notes Josiah Stine, Marketing Coordinator at Genesis Air.
With both retrofitting panels and freestanding units, the company helps improve IAQ and leaves the air cleaner than before. Genesis Air’s RGS III and the RGS mini are multi-purpose units designed to be wall-mounted or freestanding. Equipped with features such as a variable speed controller for the blower, multiple UVGI lamps, a MERV 13 filter, and a catalyst panel, these products not only collect and filter harmful airborne particles but also kill them.
The Genesis Air Retrofit Panel Unit is designed to be installed in the supply ductwork of most rooftop or air handling units downstream of the particulate filtration and before or after the evaporator coil. The product helps reduce smoke pollution, airborne biologicals, mold spores, bacteria, odors, VOCs, and several other irritants.
Determined to significantly improve the IAQ in various applications, Genesis Air caters to hospitals, airports, schools, and state and federal governments. From eliminating smoke and odor from casinos and cannabis grow facilities to killing airborne viral pathogens and reducing kennel cough in animal care centers, the company’s products are versatile and have a wide range of use cases across industries. Genesis Air also offers its portable air purifiers for commercial purposes under its consumer division, 4S Centerpoint Technology.
In an industry where routine maintenance is essential, Genesis Air’s products are cost-effective and easy to use, install, and service. In typical residential or commercial applications, CenterPointTM panels break down pollutants. Multiple tests over 20 years have confirmed the panels’ ability to reduce VOCs without producing harmful byproducts during the process. The panels may also prevent the accumulation of chemicals by converting toxic substances into benign materials. The company’s panels have a 15-year lifespan when maintained according to the manufacturer’s specifications, saving significant dollars in the long run. Built with an ergonomic design in compliance with the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Standards, Genesis Air’s products offer value for money with low life cycle costs. The company also holds certifications from UL, CARB, FIFRA (EPA), and OSHPD.
What Sets Us Apart From Other Market Players Is That Our Products Have Been Third Party Tested In The Lab With SARS-Cov-2 Active Virus Samples
Backed by nearly two decades of experience, Genesis Air has established itself as a market leader in the air quality segment. “Air quality has been a hot topic since the outbreak of the pandemic and will continue to be the center of attention as new variants of the virus emerge. Our SARS-CoV-2 tested products give us the edge over other players in the market and we are determined to continue growing and refining our products to best serve our clients,” concludes Stine
