Cleaning Your Air With Light

AirPrizm purifiers break down chemical pollutants and odors into harmless molecules using Photo-regenerative Adsorbent Technology (PAT). 

Inside AirPrizm purifiers, dirty air comes into contact with a special material called Ditanium. This material has the unique ability to adsorb or 'pick up' chemical pollutants at the molecular level.

As the dirty air and Ditanium meet, light from blue LEDs is used to provide energy for a chemical reaction between the two.


This reaction breaks apart the bonds of pollutants and odors, degrading them into harmless nitrogen, carbon dioxide and water.

Ditanium is the special material that is at the core of PAT. It contains the glass shells of diatoms and light activated ingredients. 

Diatoms are single-celled organisms found in fresh water, salt water, and soil. 


They are photosynthetic making them naturally efficient at absorbing light. Diatoms also have a large surface area.

These two traits allow the diatom shells to easily 'catch' the pollutants and light necessary for the chemical reaction.

Once light energy has been captured by the diatom shells,  it is transferred to the light activated ingredients. 

These ingredients become 'activated' by the energy, and break down the bonds of the pollutants

Extensive testing on AirPrizm purifiers has been conducted by both third parties and our own scientists. 

This research has shown that our purifiers are highly effective at cleaning air. 

These are just some examples of data demonstrating our purifier's ability to catch and degrade different pollutants.
