Green Pure Air is a Canadian company, that exclusively produces a proprietary “antimicrobial oil” from the leaves of the thuja plicata tree, which are native to British Columbia. The application used is steam processing, which is environmentally friendly. The oil of the thuja plicata, has been used traditionally among aboriginal groups of the Pacific north west for hundreds of years, to treat a variety of upper respiratory symptoms.
In 2004 the founder, Kelly Crosby, submitted a patent application (approved in 2007), that covers a diffuser design and the method of distributing, thuja plicata oil in vapor form, throughout commercial buildings for control of airborne pathogens.
In 2009 – 2012, Dr. Hudson, UBC Emeritus Professor, conducted scientific valuations and concluded thuja plicata vapor was a safe, green, broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent for decontamination of buildings. In 2015, efficacy tests were conducted by Antimicrobial Test Laboratories USA, who concluded that our proprietary thuja plicata oil inactivated infectious viruses, Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria by 99.9999%, within 60 minute period.
Our system provides reduced energy costs, reduced carbon foot print and improved air quality for occupants of buildings and various facilities.
REDUCes ENERGY USAGE & CARBON EMISSIONS
On average a commercial buildings HVAC and related air system consumes over 50% of the buildings total power usage. The efficiency of the HVAC system is extremely hampered by bio-film, that builds up on the cooling exchange fins, inhibiting the heat transfer and reducing airflow.
Our system simply retrofits to the buildings air handlers and deactivates bacteria forming micro-film and removes the dependence for manual cleaning and chemical usage. Infectious bacteria and viruses are inactivated from HVAC components like coils, drain trays, filters, compressors, plenums and air ducts, maintaining equipment at their original performances, without using harmful toxins or requiring expensive maintenance.
"Energy efficiency improvements in the building sector, is the most cost effective approach to reduce energy use & carbon emissions" "HVAC systems provide an excellent growth area for mold & bacteria" (Leveetin et al. 2001)
OUR ANTIMICROBIAL SYSTEM CLEANS & CONTROLS AIRBORNE & SURFACE PATHOGENS THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE BUILDING 24/7
HVAC systems transport infectious microbes to all occupied spaces of a building, our system deactivates infectious pathogens within the HVAC system and all occupied spaces of the building, providing an healthy indoor environment.
Our system installs in commercial buildings, hotels and casinos, healthcare facilities, schools, airports, aircraft, food production facilities, cruise lines, in fact any facility that has a air distribution system.
usda & ormi organic certification & ACCREDITATION'S
Green Pure Air's natural product has been certified by the Organic Raw Materials Review Institute (OMRI) of Canada & the United States & is in compliance with the USDA National Organic Program
Our patented system has accreditation's, from Canada Agi-Innovation Fund, USA Scientific Laboratories, University of British Columbia, scientifically proven to inactivate 99.9999% of surface & airborne infectious bacteria and viruses
We are members of the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) & Canada Green Building Council (CGBC)
AIR FILTRATION COMPETITORS
HEPA filters can only filter larger (0.3 microns and above), micron-sized particles from the air (infectious spores can be less than 0.001 microns), these infectious particles are trapped & can actually grow & multiply within HEPA filters
"HEPA filters can serve as a source for infections…surveillance of these HEPA filters should be established (SHEA 2017)"
Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) has adverse health effects to humans & does not clean the air (Am J Infect Control 2010)
Green Pure Air is safe for occupants, distributed throughout the entire building 24/7, including the soft surfaces of occupied rooms
Our proprietary antimicrobial plant-derived vapor is scientifically validated by virologists & US accredited laboratories to;
- "Be a natural, safe antimicrobial agent that inactivates airborne infectious pathogens within buildings 24/7"
- "Inactivate 99.9999% of Gram-positive & Gram-negative Bacteria (S.aureus, salmonella, e.coli, MSRA, bacteria strains) using the test surrogate organism Staphylococcus 6538”
- "Inactivate 99.9999% kill of Viruses (norovirus, Influenza viruses, poliovirus, H1N1, H3N2, B, HSV-1, HSV-2, Rhinovirus 14, Adenovirus 4, other viral strains) using the test surrogate organism MS2 Bacteriophage (MS2), ATCC 15597"
- "Inactivate 99.999% mold forming fungi spores"
