Turning Toxic Fumes Into Breathable Air…
Every year, air pollution causes 7 million deaths globally. That’s 7x the number of deaths associated with water pollution! We breathe in a wide range of airborne pollutants every day, both indoors and outdoors. Indoors, they are caused by cooking, cleaning, and off-gassing of paint, carpeting, furniture, and other sources. Outdoors, airborne pollutants originate from cars, trucks, planes, energy generators, factories, and the list goes on. They are a major cause of cancer, heart attacks, and chronic illnesses.
Metalmark is on a mission to address challenges associated with air pollution and climate change. Located in Boston, MA, our scientists and engineers are tackling these problems by inventing novel materials that can decompose pollutants and improve energy efficiency of buildings, vehicles, and much more.
*Examples of air pollutants: PM2.5 (including PM1.0 and PM0.1), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide (CO), ozone, sulfur oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx), and more.
